A Florida man, age 38, is implicated in stealing a car following him making his way out of a West Palm Beach-area bar this past weekend, at that point he got the car stuck on railway tracks where it was struck by an oncoming train, then the car was sent crashing into a close-by house.
“NO TITLE COULD EXPLAIN THIS CASE, BUT THE DETAILS WILL…WELL, IT’S BEST TO JUST READ ON,” the Martin County Sheriff’s Department stated at the start of its Facebook post.
Police say that Bradford Weitzel professed he took possession of the misfortunate automobile “in a good faith effort” in order to utilize it to locate his very own vehicle. The Port St. Lucie man apparently informed the cops that he abandoned the stolen vehicle seconds prior to the stalled car getting hit by a train. Weitzel at that point attempted to steal a forklift from a close-by fruit shop that he purportedly wrecked while doing so.
“In the end, Weitzel said he thought it was best to flag down the responding deputies to let them know he was still looking for his car,” police pointed out.
Cops mentioned no one was injured or hurt during the Saturday morning mayhem, however, they said “the explosive sound of a driverless car smashing into the side of their home was clearly jolting” for individuals inside the residence.
Weitzel was apprehended and is facing charges of Grand Theft as well as Criminal Mischief. Bradford Weitzel is expected to face additional charges, Martin County sheriffs stated.
