A Very Bad Idea...

According to the Battle Creek Enquirer...

An unidentified man in Paw Paw, Mich., got his car stuck in the mud near Leroy Township.

No need to wait for a tow truck. "After several attempts to free the car," said a spokesman for the Calhoun County sheriff, "the man placed his toolbox on the vehicle accelerator, exited the vehicle and attempted to push the vehicle free. The man was successful."

Success, of course, is relative: he got his Mercury full- sized sedan clear from the mud, but then had to run behind it to try to catch it.

No luck. The car reached an estimated 100 mph, sometimes going airborne after hitting bumps, until it smashed into a tree a half-mile from the mud pit. Deputies decided not to give any citations to the man, who was not injured.
