Demented Old Man Pays Toll With Corpse Stuck in Windshield

Ouch:

A 93-year-old driver apparently suffering from dementia fatally struck a pedestrian and drove for three miles with the man’s body through his windshield, police said.

Ralph Parker was stopped after he drove through a tollbooth on the Sunshine Skyway, Traffic Homicide Investigator Michael Jockers said. The toll taker called police, he said.

Parker was not likely to face charges because he did not appear to know what happened or where he was, said Bruce Bartlett, chief assistant in the Pinellas-Pasco County State Attorney’s Office.

“He may have somewhere in his mind have realized it was a crash, but immediately forgot about it,” Jockers said.
