Moron Steals Steamroller, Gets Himself Killed, Family May Sue (genghis)

(I’ll update this with a video clip if and when it becomes available. I got this from multiple sources, so settle down AP)

In the wee hours of Tuesday morning, in the quaint hamlet of Blaine, WA, an 18 year-old man and two 17 year-old accomplices entered a construction site. The 18 year-old started up an unattended steamroller, tried to drive it up a dirt pile and was then killed when it flipped over on top of him. Police say that alcohol may have been involved, I’m shocked to report.

The moron’s parents just appeared on a local tv news broadcast and it appears they’re all fired up to sue the construction company because the construction site wasn’t fenced in and the keys to the steamroller were left in it. According to mom and dad:

"They were just boys out looking to have a good time. Not causing trouble, not vandalize things”

Well, that’s good to hear, and that was about the mildest thing they said in the interview. Basically it was “they’re gonna’ pay” or “they’re gonna’ be sorry.” You get the gist.

Hopefully, if they do sue, the family will get some kind of award for their loss.
