    Drunk Man steals ambulance with patient and crew inside

    Troopers Miss Man's Body At Crash Scene

    I see your point in the searching for a body. 100yds is a long way for a body to fly, and I dont know the area but if there are walls or K-rail and he went behind it, either flew or jumped thats his bad day. The FHP did his search that was in his SoP and went back to his job. Life happens is it...

    You did WHAT with THAT?!

    So..Now I know how that will turn out. Looks like I wont try that plan then lol. I wonder what people think before they attempt things like this?
