Carriage ran over a fucking couple

  1. LOVE STRUCK -- Confirmed Darwin Award Nominee

    "...just don't do it in the street and frighten the horses."

    (March 2002, England) As Kim, 32, and Paul, 40, left the pub,
    they noticed that a streetlight was burned out, creating an
    attractive pool of darkness on the road. Unable to rein in
    their passion, they began to consummate their relationship
    on the asphalt outside the pub.

    Witnesses said the couple was lying right on the white line,
    kissing and cuddling. The passionate pair were warned of the
    danger of their chosen coital position not once, not twice,
    but 3 times -- by a car driver, a bus driver, and a pedestrian.

    An off-duty paramedic honked three times and shouted, "You want
    to get up, or otherwise you’ll be run over." The man simply said
    "Cheers, mate," and the paramedic heard a female voice laughing.
    A bus driver swerved to avoid them, and drove past with wheels
    on the curb. A concerned pedestrian shouted to warn them that
    another bus was headed their way.

    Despite these disruptions, Kim and Paul continued, oblivious to
    the approach of a small, single-decker Nipper bus. The bus driver
    mistook the undulating shape for a bag of rubbish in the poorly
    lit street, and was unable to stop in time.

    There was a dull thud...

    Kim and Paul were struck and killed at midnight. Paramedics
    found Kim lying on her back with her jumper pulled up, and Paul
    between her legs with his trousers pulled down.

    The only downside to this timely removal of lunacy from the
    gene pool is the fate of the bus driver. Despite the couple's
    own actions, and a police investigator's statement that "one
    can expect a pedestrian walking or running in the road, but
    to expect a driver to anticipate a pedestrian lying in the road
    is out of the ordinary" -- a judge felt that "his driving fell
    below the standard one would reasonably expect of a prudent,
    competent driver."

    The bus driver was fined for careless driving and his license
    was revoked for six months. Fortunately, his employers consider
    him an excellent employee, and plan to give him other duties
    for six months. Relatives of the victims said they were glad
    the driver had kept his job.
