SUV takes a dip in Nosferatu chiller

28 Reg comments Got Tips?

An unnamed Colorado woman whose SUV ended up in a canal blamed the mishap on a vampire, 9news.com reports.

The chilling Nosferatu incident happened on a dirt road in Mesa County, west of Denver. The driver told Colorado State Patrol operatives "she saw the vampire in front of her car so she put her SUV into reverse and went into the canal".

While cops don't reckon an excess of drink or drugs were behind the prang, it's possible a lack of the latter might have been a factor, since "investigators say there is evidence the woman was not taking her prescribed medication".

The victim emerged unscathed from her brush with Dracula, and was not charged. ®
