Great motoring myths - or are they true?
There was a story around once, probably a myth, but the version I heard probably in the '70s was a bloke came adrift on The Boulevarde in Hawthorn (Melb) and when police arrived the dead sheila's head was in his lap with his bitten-off snag in her mouth, and he'd died from blood loss. I suppose the cause of the accident was that he lost his load on a corner.
Another one I've heard a number of times over the years was a bloke on a motorbike overtaking a truck with corrugated iron sheets, one of which came off and decapitated the bike bloke. The de luxe version of the story says he continued past and the truck driver had a coronary when he saw the headless bike rider pass.
Have you heard these or any others?
