Police officers couldn't believe their eyes when they spotted the vehicle being driven along the road.
The bizarre incident, which took place in Roselle, Illinois, occurred when 54-year-old Maryann Christy was spotted driving around town with a 15ft tree embedded in the front of her car.

After being pulled over by a police officer she stated that she was aware that she had collided with the tree but was unable to remember exactly where the collision had taken place.

All the airbags inside her 2004 Lincoln had also been deployed at the time of the smash.


A sobriety test later revealed that Christy had consumed copious quantities of alcohol.

"Yet another reason why you should not drink and drive!" the department wrote on Facebook.

A woman is facing a court appearance after being filmed driving a car with a tree wedged into its front. Police in Roselle, Illinois, said the tree was thought to be around 15ft tall. The footage, captured in January, has received thousands of likes and shares on the police department's Facebook page after it was posted this week. Deputy Chief Roman Tarchala told the Chicago Tribune: "We didn't stand there and measure it - but it was a big tree." http://news.sky.com/...ee-stuck-in-car Reminded me of the time I had to drive a few miles to find a safe pullover to remove a dead deer from my hood ...

She was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol http://news.sky.com/...ee-stuck-in-car Ah now we get down to the nitty gritty. I was beginning to feel a very slight touch of sympathy for her til I came to this bit. Take away her licence, bang her up for 3 years and make her plant trees 1 hour a day on day release .....shackled obviously.

ps: my husband told me the story about a time he was driving his lorry about 40mph on a country lane when a car tried to over take him, traffic was coming the other way and my husband being the good citizen he is on the road, put his foot down and the other car ended up in the hedge...still over taking him but now completely covered in hedges before eventually coming to a stop, somewhere in the hedges. My husband, like the good citizen on the road he is, carried on driving safely.

So... will she get charged with timber theft? That's sort of a serious question.

A false start but the era of driving trees nears. Roots and all. So eco-friendly. Until then we will have to settle for using them as portals and shrines. Or camouflage fail.
