Seattle police recently pulled over a speeding Mazda doing 82mph on I-5 that was also making some unsafe lane changes. The police officer was shocked to find that the driver was driving with a skeleton in the passenger seat dressed in a hoody jacket.

But, this story isn’t quite as frightening as it may seem. It turns out that the skeleton was made of plastic and not real. No one was murdered, and no corpse was dug up either. The driver was just looking for a way to illegally use the HOV lane, and didn’t attempt to excuse his actions.

But things had to be a little shocking to the officer who just attempting to pull over an unsafe driver when it looked like corpse was in the car. No word on whether he had to draw his gun. At least, what went from scary for the officer quickly turned funny.
