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

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.

Her cell phone was probably ringing, somewhere...

She later revealed to police that at least she was wearing clean underwear. You know what mom always said.

HA! Nope....I just looked under "House Contents," and there were no teeth!

Did you see the "House Contents?"

And I thought I was a pack-rat!

Did you see the "House Contents?"

I was commenting on the teeth in his mouth. I only see two in the picture. I did read the contents. It's interesting that they were from an upper middle class family (father a doctor) and were both very well educated. Very strange.

I actually have some experience with this. In the 80s a guy I worked with said he'd pay me $20 an hour to help clean out his recently deceased aunt's house in Federal Hill, Baltimore. I thought that was pretty good money so I agreed. Unfortunately, I quickly realized I shouldn't have agreed. Every floor of the house was stacked floor to ceiling with junk of every imaginable kind. There were narrow pathways through the junk that allowed some semblance of movement from room to room. The stench was overpowering. Fortunately we found no bodies.

This hoarding disorder seems to mostly afflict those who were in their impressionable years when the depression hit.

LOL! I know you were referring to his picture.

Unbelievable story about the house you agreed to help clean!

My mom was a pack-rat, but some the things in her house we cleaned were four sets china (12 place settings each), numerous sets of crystal, glassware, many sets of cooking utensils, etc., still packed in their original boxes....some purchased 30 years prior to her passing. Not that she didn't offer to give them to us, her children,...she did. It's just that she had already given us similar items already.

Several years ago I befriended an elderly lady and agreed to attend a meeting with her at a church. I offered to pick her up at her townhouse. I couldn't believe her house when I entered...there were newspapers tied in bundles and stacked about four feet high in every room I could see. The house reeked of cat urine, and drapes on the windows were missing every other hook. Her furniture was worn and dirty, etc....

I really felt sorry for her and was honestly thinking of helping her until she looked at me and said, "Now, I hope you don't steal from me like some other people have. Just ask, and I'll give you what you want."

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

That would work up until the point she needed to steer it. With the key in the off position it's a locked wheel.

Thanks...interesting!

I liked Uncle Arthur:

People just leave parking tickets on their cars," he said wonderingly. "I must have found thousands of dollars' worth. Every day I could pick one up."

Not true. There is an "Off" position before the locked position.
