Drunken Joyride On Steamroller Ends Badly
Some police blotter items are just too hard to resist. Here's an example published this morning in Ontario's Sudbury Star:
A 19-year-old Greater Sudbury man remains in stable condition in hospital after a steamroller accident in Bell Park early Sunday.
Traffic Sgt. Gary Lavoie said Monday the man had to undergo emergency surgery to treat a serious leg injury and has yet to appear in court on the charges.
The man was found pinned underneath a steamroller in Bell Park about 3:20 a.m. Sunday.
Investigating officers determined the man had taken the steamroller for a joyride and lost control. The steamroller tipped over on him. The man had been drinking, police say.
