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.

Put that driver in charge of Obamacare.
The door has since been placed on paid administrative leave.
What’s on the road, a head?
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.
Idiocracy — it’s here.
The Jackass show comes to rel life (and death).
I will slow down. Whoops, real.
Hey, at least this guy was actually dead. There’s been stories of people “waking up” at the morgue.
There have. sheesh.
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 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.
Turning a road into a dead end street——literaly.
Highways, byways and now DIEDways...
-—and if the rolling corpse was traveling west it was riding off into the sunset..
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.
Cop: What did he die of? Coroner: Multiple abrasions, broken bones and tire tracks. Oh, by the way he was 99 years old.
A funeral procession is going up a steep hill on main street when the door of the hearst flies open and the coffin falls out then speeds down main street into a pharmacy and crashes into the counter. The lids pops open and the deceased says to the astonished pharmacist, “You got anything to stop this coffin ?”
Ba-Dump-Dump! Thanks! I’ll be here all week! Try the veal and don’t forget to tip your Waitress. :)
So in other words, someone smarter than a Democrat rolled out onto the street.
‘There’s” (there has) is perfectly appropriate.’
It doesn’t work in this case because the verb needs to agree with “stories”, which is plural. (I.e.: “Theres been stories”) You can see the issue by rearranging the structure, but keeping the same noun & verbs:
Stories has been going around [verb/noun disagreement]
Stories have been going around [verb/noun agreement]
There’s a Five Guy’s burger place right there.

That’s even worse than a wardrobe malfunction...
Corniest. Joke. Ever. :)
A US Navy Corpse-man?
Book recommendation alert:
Anybody who has read the most excellent (and very funny) Stephanie Plum (she’s a bounty hunter) books by Janet Evanovich will recognize this as business as usual. Bodies fall out of caskets, from the tops of cars, and no doubt a hearse now and then.
At times, this happens courtesy of Stephanie’s grandma, who attends viewings to get a look at the deceased and partake of the refreshments. Grandma also packs whenever she can, and wouldn’t hesitate to use it. Read them in order, if possible, beginning with “One For The Money”.
And this is opposed to a live body falling out of the coroners vehicle?
Now THERE’s something you don’t see everyday...
