Do Not Set Up a Mini-Meth Lab in a Moving Car: Sad Lessons from Actual Floridians

When police found 36-year-old Clifford Ellison dead inside an overturned car in Lakeland, Florida, they at first assumed he had died in the accident. Turns out that wasn't the case. He actually died because the man in his passenger seat set off a mini-explosions while trying to mix meth in the moving vehicle.

Ellison's overturned vehicle and body were found Tuesday on Drane Field Road in Lakeland, and witnesses quickly informed police that something about the accident seemed strange, according to The Orlando Sentinel. Witness said there was "some sort of commotion" in the car, and they deduced that a second person had been in the car but fled after the crash.

Turns out that man was 26-year-old Jerek L. Evans. Police say he had been making "shake and bake" meth in the passenger seat. The quickie-method of making meth doesn't require the use of a source of heat or a full meth lab. All wannabe-Walter Whites need is the right chemicals and something to shake them up in.

Of course, those chemicals are still highly combustible, and the glass bottle Evan's was making his meth in exploded. Shards from the bottle shot into Ellison's neck. Police believe that is what killed him, not the car crash. An autopsy will be carried out today to confirm.

Meth heads making meth and blowing themselves up - it doesn't get much better than that. He's better off dead than addicted to that shit.

Speaking as a friend of that meth head, i think heartless bloggers are better off dead. He left children behind and family and friends that really care about him. I am a former tweeker and have been clean for 5 yrs . That is a powerful drug and it wasnt him making it it was his passenger, so in my eyes its still a horrible accident that shouldnt have happened but thanks for showing your i.q for everyone to see dumb ass

No!you are the dumb ass. You're equal to whats known as a dry drunk in the alcohol world of a self help program known as A.A.Yes the brain changes after being poisioned,However ,he made a choice to use in the begining. Before we lend ourselves to talk smak about each other and their opinions or belief remember that someone else is having to deal with the aftermath of his poor decisions....albeit STONED or TWEEKING or SOBER you gotta admit it was a stupid move.
