Illustration for article titled Family Of Five Survives Poisoning By Crashing Neon

There are so many things wrong with this story of five people in a Dodge Neon nearly dying of carbon monoxide poising in Anchorage, but let's focus first one what's right: everyone survived. Now that we've covered that let's marvel at the fact that they got five people into a Dodge Neon. The story starts when the car's exhaust gets bent around in a way that the exhaust fumes went straight into the trunk and ends with the car crashing into a snowbank.


It was that crash that saved their lives, causing first responders to show up and treat the victims before being fatally poisoned. Let this be a lesson that if you're driving around, especially in a snowy and rough climate, pull over if you start feeling dizzy. Pushing through it isn't usually a smart idea. [AP via Google.]
