- A 33-year-old man from Tennessee flipped his truck five times on the road
- Chad England, who was high on drugs, told police he crashed the car because Jesus was calling him and told him he should let go of the wheel
A man from Tennessee was a******d by police after he flipped his truck five times; saying that ‘Jesus was calling him and advised him to let go of the wheel.’
Chad O. England, 33, crashed his car in Knoxville, Tennesse and decided to dash away from the scene carrying a jar ‘speaking gibberish’.
England’s 2015 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck had flipped five times after veering off the highway, according to The Bristol Hearld Courier. A Tennessee Highway Patrol report says England told officers he had closed his eyes and let go of the wheel.
“He said that Jesus was calling him and advised him to let go of the wheel, and that’s what he did,” the report states. He told officers he was behind the wheel, but wasn’t driving at the time of the crash.
Police officers found m*******a, cocaine, pipes, rolling papers and a bottle of whiskey inside the truck.
England now faces charges for drunk driving, possession of illegal drugs, and lacking a driver’s license, registration and insurance.
