In the US state of Massachusetts, a man allegedly broke into a woman’s car and hid in the back seat, hiding under a coat. When the driver noticed the intruder, she started to drive so chaotically that he fell out through the unlocked car door, according to police. The man has been found and has been charged.
The incident took place on the night of July 16-17 in Yarmouth, Cape Cod. As the “New York Post” explains, referring to the statement of the local police, approx. At 1:00 a.m., an officer patrolling a state road noticed a car parked on the side of the road. The police officer, thinking the vehicle had broken down, walked closer and noticed a “scared and nervous” woman trying to call 911.
The woman, whose personal details were not made public, explained to the officer that she had left her friends’ house a moment earlier and got into her car. At first, she didn’t notice anything unusual, but at some point, when the light shone into the interior of the car, she was to see that a man was sitting on the back seat, hiding his head under a coat. “Extremely frightened, she began to drive erratically that the man fell out through the rear door of the car that was not fully closed and onto the road,” the police statement quoted by the newspaper said.
