Greetings fellow Bizarros:
A Washington state driver's dashcam recorded the moment a woman got out of her car at a red light and was run over by her own vehicle.
The footage recorded by David Alger's dashboard camera at the red light to get out of the Costco parking lot in Burlington shows a woman driving a white vehicle ahead of Alger. The video shows another driver pull up beside the woman and signal her that her gas cap is loose.
"She just went to pick up the gas cap and realized the car was moving, so she went back to jump back into the car and grab the steering wheel," Alger said. "And as she grabbed the steering wheel with the car still moving forward, I would imagine the wheel turned to the left and that's when she was dragged underneath the left rear tire and run over. Both legs. Went right up over her buttock and over both legs."
Alger, who is seen running to help the woman, said she insisted she was uninjured. "She wanted to take off after the vehicle and run through the intersection and I said, 'Whoa, hold on here. How are you, let me help you, hold on to me.' And she said, 'I'm fine. There's nothing wrong with me I'm fine,'" he said.
Alger said the woman drove away after being checked out by police and paramedics.

Love Means Never Having to Call in a Bomb Threat
A jealous boyfriend was arrested after allegedly calling the police to report that his girlfriend was carrying a bomb and drugs on a plane, according to police in New York. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) said that they have arrested 33-year-old Danesh Gomanie of Queens, after being accused of trying to prevent his girlfriend from flying to Guyana, in order to stop her from meeting her former husband. According to the criminal complaint, Gomanie called 911 on Wednesday, and told the dispatcher that there was a woman on Caribbean Airlines flight 527 who was carrying a bomb and drugs. Gomanie admitted that made the call because he was upset with his girlfriend for flying to Guyana, and was afraid she would meet her former husband who lives there. The girlfriend laughed at the idea of hooking up with her former husband, saying that they have been separated for 10 years. The girlfriend forgave Gomanie for making the prank call to police. Gomanie was booked into jail, and his bail was set $20,000.
The Most Canadian Crime Ever
Thieves in Canada made off with more than 5,000 gallons of maple syrup from trucks stored at a local warehouse. The shipment was meant to be sent to Japan before delays forced it to be locked away temporarily. Vice president of Mexuscan Cargo shipping company Alfredo Monaco said thieves broke into the warehouse and stole a shipping container carrying 20 pallets with a total of about 5,283 gallons of the syrup. According to the CBC, the shipping company is offering a $10,000 reward for the load's return. Monaco said insurance will not cover the total of the missing goods and the company would lose about $60,000, making the decision to offer a reward an easy one. "$10,000 is not much compared to the value of the goods," Monaco said.
