Dude Run Over By Wife, Twice! She Claims It Was An Accident!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A New Zealand man is recovering from injuries after being run over by his wife -- twice, local media reported on Friday.

Sandy Telford ran over her husband, Terry, as she backed down the driveway of their rural property in the Hawke`s Bay region, 350 kilometers (220 miles) north-east of Wellington, the Dominion Post newspaper reported.

Not realizing what she had done, Telford then drove her car forward, running over him again."


With the exception of the Reuters reporter, I don`t think anyone else is giving Sandy the benefit of the doubt. The third paragraph from this wire story should read: Allegedly, she didn`t realize what she had done.

It`s impossible to mistake a human body for a speed bump. A human body is soft and squishy and unlike a speed bump a person will cry out in pain when you run over him.

One out of ten men might believe that his wife ran over him accidentally, but only one out of a gazillion will believe that she ran over him accidentally, not once, but twice.

The police shouldn`t let the guy`s wife visit him in the hospital, she might "accidentally" smother him to death.
