Don't Drink And Drive: Drunk Driver Tries To Drive Home With 15-Foot Tree Stuck In Car's Grill

March 9, 2016


These are a couple pictures and the police dashcam footage of a drunk woman who tried to drive her car home after hitting a 15-foot tree and getting it stuck in her car's grill. Apparently the airbags deployed after hitting the tree and everything and she still decided to try to drive home. Don't drink and drive, folks.

The woman was pulled over around 11:10 p.m. Jan. 23 on Central Avenue after police received a call about a vehicle driving with a tree embedded in the grille, according to Roselle Deputy Chief Roman Tarchala. The driver was charged with DUI after failing a field sobriety test.

The woman told police that she struck the tree somewhere in Schaumburg, Tarchala said.

"I've been in law enforcement for 28 years and I've never seen anything like it," Tarchala added.

You think the whole time the tree was stuck there she was worried she was headed straight for a tree? Drunk drivers are terrifying. Order an Uber or a Lyft or some other ride-sharing service. Or, if you're over 75 and apps scare you, call a cab. Just don't drink and drive. Do it for me, I walk everywhere and sidewalks are terrifying after seeing shit like this.

Keep going for one more shot of the whole tree and the arresting officer's dashcam footage.


Thanks to my buddy Luke, who had a breathalyzer installed on his jetpack so he can't take off if he's had one too many in the beer garden.

    Gonna go out on a limb here, but pretty sure the bartender said she was too drunk and had to leaf. Which planted the idea in her head that she needed to pull up roots and branch out, maybe find a liquor store fir more boozes.

    maybe she was thinking it was good camouflage and no one would notice her.

  • Bling Nye

    She totally would've gotten way with it, except this guy knew the trick.

    What make/model is that car? I'm impressed it's still driveable.

    It's such bad taste to think this way, but I wondered and thought the same thing. I also have the opinion, maybe wrong, that if this person can be this far gone and still driving then chances are they've been this wasted before and this is just the first time they got caught. Just doesn't seem like "it's their first time' sort of screw up.
