2010 At-Risk Survivor
The stupidity displayed by the participants in the following tales stops short of the ultimate Darwin Awards sacrifice. Nevertheless, we salute the spirit and innovation of their misadventures. Next Prev Random

Skate The Interstate
2010 At-Risk Survivor
Confirmed True by Darwin

(3 January 2010, Vermont) The Burlington Free Press reported that a man with a suspended driver's license was caught pulling a sled behind his vehicle along Interstate 89 an hour after midnight. When police located the vehicle, its driver was preparing to trade places with the person riding on the sled. Caleb, 23, received a citation to appear in court to answer the charge of driving with a suspended license. Regardless of whether it is lawful to pull a sled down the Interstate, doing so certainly upholds Vermont's tradition of fielding strong candidates for the Darwin Awards
