Drivers traveling on a busy Bucks County, Pennsylvania, road on Friday had to navigate an unusual obstruction -- a gurney carrying a corpse.

A Bucks County Coroner's Office van was traveling down the 100 block of E. Street Road in Lower Southampton, Pennsylvania, around noon when the vehicle's rear door malfunctioned, the coroner's office confirms. The body then rolled out of the van and onto the road near the Bucks Crossing Shopping Center.

The door has since been placed on paid administrative leave.

Life in this country has become the real life version of those sophomoric, goofy, “comedies” that the college kiddies waste mom and pop’s money to go see at the theaters.

The Jackass show comes to rel life (and death).

Hey, at least this guy was actually dead. There’s been stories of people “waking up” at the morgue.

Maybe there was a malfunction or maybe the ambulance driver was negligent. I rode to the hospital with my father in laws dead body and the driver didn’t even strap him onto the gurney. I had to hold him on with my arms or he would have rolled off on the wild ride to the hospital. It didn’t have to be a wild ride because he was already dead. Not something that I relish remembering.

Philly? If the coroner didn’t already abscond with the watch and jewelry, it’s gone by now.

Wow! I’m glad it was wrapped up and that it didn’t happen on a hill.

"There's"

"There's" (there has) is perfectly appropriate.

I saw that in a Three Stooges or Laurel & Hardy show, back in the late-50s.

Heard they were having a sale to die for at the mall.

Highways, byways and now DIEDways...

Most hearses have a mechanism to lock a casket in place, but not a gurney. I'm sure this van didn't have one.

When I was in Funeral Service, I once had to take a station wagon (mid 80s, minivans weren't popular yet) to Jacksonville to pick up a body. On the way back, I stopped in Valdosta to visit my childhood friend's house.

He wasn't there, but his mom (my 2nd mom) and his brother were. I had to tell them there was a dead person in their driveway.
