Blind car thief crashes stolen car

A 24-year-old from romania crashed into a tree in a car he stole earlier.

The Romanian man decided to steal a car after he had a row with friends about his inablility to do anything. His friends told him he was useless.

To prove his friends wrong Alin Popescu set out to steal a

car and drive it home. That would shut 'm up, so he thought.

He actually managed to break into a parked car and start it with a screwdriver. He even succeeded in driving the car over a busy road for half a mile (0.8 km).

But after that the fun was over. Alin lost the little control over the car he had and smashed into a tree. He was knocked out by the crash and later arrested by the police.

He told police: "I just wanted to prove to myself that I could do anything I wanted - despite my handicap. I only crashed because I was not sure of the way home."

If I were Alin, I would find some better friends. Maybe doing something which is actually legal is also a smarter thing to do. At least he'll have plenty of time to think about his stupidness in jail!
