    Woman in burning truck keeps driving

    PAW PAW TOWNSHIP, Mich. - Having live electrical wires fall on her truck and set it on fire wasn't enough to slow a motorist in southwest Michigan. State police say the unnamed woman ran a stop sign Monday night in Van Buren County's Paw Paw Township and hit a cable supporting a utility pole.

    The pole came down and the wires fell onto the truck, but the woman backed onto the roadway and resumed driving.

    Trooper Rick Carlson said the driver kept going until flames engulfed the truck and she had to jump out. An ambulance caught up to her and took her to a Kalamazoo hospital for burns to her hands and head. Her injuries weren't life-threatening.

    Carlson says the woman's dog, a pug, also was burned but survived.

    No mention of what her BAL was though. How drunk do you have to be to not stop for your truck being on fire?
    "man is it getting hot in here or is it just me" ???

    Another reason why you should stay BLV you are king of the "news of the weird"
