'Mountains Of Trash' Inside Car Blamed For Crash (Pic)
local6 ^ | February 12, 2007

Posted on 02/12/2007 3:14:14 PM PST by stainlessbanner

Mountains of trash stuffed inside a woman's car in Cape Cod, Mass., caused the car to accelerate and crash, according to police.

Police in West Yarmouth said there was so much trash in 53-year-old Ann Ann Biglan's Ford Focus that some of it fell onto the gas and brake pedals, causing her to lose control.

While losing control, Biglan drove through a post office parking space, over the curb and across a freeway.

She then hit a Ford Explorer and backed over another sidewalk before finally crashing into a flowerpot in a gas station's parking lot.

Biglan was charged with negligent and impeded operation of a motor vehicle, failure to use care in backing, and operating with a rejected safety inspection sticker.

I wouldn't be surprised to hear of 5 or 6 cats scurrying from the wreckage.

I was thinking the same thing. My car gets pretty bad during the week but I do try to organize every weekend. Oddly enough, my teenage son's car is spotless at all times.

Sounds like Chappaquidick, only in that case the pile of trash was driving the car.

It's that sticker thing that's going to cause her to do hard time.

I knew a guy when I was in the Navy, whose car was so nasty, there were cockroaches living in it.

His shipboard nickname was "Danky", because his personal hygiene was no better...

Silly goose. Put the transmission selector into neutral and then turn off the ignition key.

At least she didn't strew this trash all over the highway and the neighborhoods. That is a plus.

"...Biglan drove through a post office parking space, over the curb and across a freeway.

OK, repeat after me: "In situations like this, if I have an automatic, neutral is my friend. If it's a stick, the clutch is my friend. Then turn the key to off."

I'd rather pay for pranged valve springs than risk killing somebody.

But the most serious charge was;

Operating a vehicle with an rejected safety inspection sticker!

I think it was the blow-up Ronald McDonald doll that blocked the controls. She also didn't wand to spill the double Latte between her legs.

My nephew lives in a suburb of Detroit. He and a friend drove up to Canada to go to the casino. The border patrol guy refused to allow them into the country because there was so much trash in the car that it would take them 1 1/2 hours just to search the car. To complicate matters, the car was actually registered to my brother for his college son's use, so the border patrol guy gave him a huge lecture on respecting his parent's belongings. It was pretty funny.

I have great sympathy for the woman. When the parents name a child "Ann Ann", this is what you eventually get.

My nine years old granddaughter has an electronic device that she uses to play with digital puppies. Using a stylus, she can buy them and sell them and teach them electronic tricks. It's just too weird for me ... at least Crazy has things to put in your fingers and set around in 'action' poses ... the palm thingy is too sedentary encouraging.

Well you're probably not relying on your car for action.

I've seen cars like this with newspapers and other stuff piled up to the windows. I've also seen people (mostly elderly) with newspapers piled up inside their houses so high you had to walk around them. I think it is a mental condition and it is not as rare as you might think.

I don't know for sure, but I'll bet older people are unsure about their future and keep things to make them feel better...nothing but a guess.
