The Car Wash Blues

Driver wins a slow-roll Darwin Award

(15 April 2022, California) Perplexing. Why did a Las Vegas resident jump
out of the car inside an Escondido car wash at midnight? Avoiding a bee?
All we know is, they did.

Rene Tactay drove into the carwash, then EXITED the Scion hatchback (!!)
while the drive was still IN GEAR. (!?) Under its own power, the Scion
evidently crept forward as cars do, and the 56-year-old was pinned beneath
the vehicle. Escondido police said, “The carwash was not active at the
time.”

The driver was noticed by the next person to visit the carwash–eek!
Authorities took the unresponsive body to Palomar Medical Center where
death was confirmed. No extenuating circumstances have been found, so we
bestow upon Rene a Washed-Up Darwin Award, and commend to the reader
these
hearty Reddit snarks.
