How often do you come across a story while surfing the internet and you resist the urge to check it out – well, that’s why I’m here!

I find these things so you don’t have to!

Dateline Maplewood, Minnesota

State Police recently needed to remind motorists that in order to use the carpool lane, you need an actual live, human passenger in the passenger seat.

Authorities say a trooper spotted a skeleton in a vehicle on March 25 in Maplewood on Interstate 35E.

The trooper pulled the driver over and discovered the skeleton.  Not only that, the skeleton was buckled incorrectly in the front seat.

The driver was cited.

“We’ve heard of having skeletons in your closet,” police joked on Facebook, “But skeletons in your passenger seat?”

It is not known if the skeleton was an actual person at the beginning of the drive and the motorist just bored him to death.
