    Smells like a lawsuit coming. Hummers cost a lot to maintain.

    My condolences to the Hummer. Deserved a better owner.

    Wow....that hummer ran for 6 1/2 hours without running out of gas? That's pretty good...I thought they were worse on gas than that. Wonder if it was a diesel....


    Judith Permar drove to a clothing drop-off box at about 2 a.m. Sunday, her black Hummer shrouded in the darkness of the Natalie, Pa., night.

    There she dangled until 8:30 the next morning, when she was finally found. Bags were scattered around her, and the Hummer’s engine was still running.

    Death by lack of imagination.

    "The fall broke her arms and wrists, which were trapped in the box. Her feet, meanwhile, didn’t quite touch the ground, leaving her hanging."

    Miserable way to die.

    assuming a full tank, just idling...not really surprising.

    Consider that the Hummer H1 has a 28 gallon tank. Idling in N or P, even with the size of the engine in it, it's likely not burning more than 1 gallon per hour.

    Sounds like a good marketing opportunity for them. They could really throw it back in the faces of those greenpeace types.

    The article references three or four other charity bin fatalities! Apparently it's a thing!

    This. And with her heated car idling a few feet away, tormenting her while she froze to death, knowing that she wasn't gonna get out of this, slowly over a couple of hours...

    Karma is, indeed, a bitch. But this one was extra bad.

    I wonder how many times the 1800KARS4KIDS ad played on the radio while she was hanging there.
