A man carrying 500 kilos of pot in his car lost his life when the illegal merchandise in the back of the vehicle slammed into him during an auto accident.
The victim was traveling from the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso do Sul to Sao Paulo this past Saturday when he refused to stop at a Federal Highway Patrol roadblock.
A chase ensued over a three mile stretch of road, which ended with a fatal crash against a tree after the man lost control of his car.
The impact resulted in the man being crushed against the steering wheel by the bricks of marijuana he was transporting.
Authorities have been unable to identify the deceased because he was carrying no identification.
After the incident, the victim's vehicle was transported, along with its load, to the police station in the town of Bataguassu.
Is this the first death by Cannabis?
