Florida Man Found Driving Around With Traffic Sign Embedded In His Skull
Newton had a piece of a traffic sign embedded in his skull.
It's not entirely clear when the signage ended up in Newton's head, but Jacksonville's Fox30 reports he rammed into a sign earlier in the evening on eastbound SR 16 outside of St. Augustine.
Photos of his Camaro show a front headlight bashed in and some window damage; apparently Newton hit the sign hard enough for a chunk of it to fly into his cranium.
Despite the grievous injuries, Newton kept driving, turning north onto US-1. That's where the FHP eventually pulled him over; when they noticed the gruesome head wound, Newton was taken to a hospital in Jacksonville, where his injuries were deemed "life threatening," Fox30 reports.
Riptide has called the FHP in St. John's County to try to get more details on Newton's case; we'll update this post when we learn more.
But the FHP did make one thing clear to Fox30: They do "believe alcohol was a factor."
