A Brazilian drug trafficker was doomed by his own product. After speeding away from authorities giving chase, the unidentified man crashed into a tree and was crushed by the half ton of weed he had stowed in his SUV.
Reports the Daily Mail:
The man died after he lost control of his car and hit a tree, resulting in his stock of weed stored in the backseat shooting forward, squashing him against the wheel.
The driver was on the run from the Federal Highway police, who had taken up the chase after the smuggler refused to stop at a road block in Bataguassu, 210 miles from Campo Grande.
The man was on his way from the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso do Sul to Sao Paulo with 500kg of marijuana when he was asked to stop by police.
In an attempt to escape, he embarked on a three-mile chase which ended against the tree where the man died instantly, Brazilian police said.
The drug dealing struggle is real, and deadly.
