Teen Driver Crashes While Trying To Hold Breath
Driver No Stranger To Bad Luck

WHEATLAND, N.Y. - Police say four teenagers trying to hold their breath for the time it takes to drive through an upstate New York hamlet were hurt when the driver fainted.

Authorities say three 19-year-old men and a 16-year-old boy were traveling together late Monday night when they decided to try to hold their breath while riding through Garbutt, a rural Rochester-area hamlet that's just three-tenths of a mile long.

Monroe County sheriff's deputies say 19-year-old Bryan Parslow of Caledonia fainted while driving and his car hit a boulder.

All four teens were treated at a hospital and released.

Parslow is no stranger to bad luck. He's a paraplegic who was paralyzed in 2008 after falling out of a window in Brockport while attending college.

Police gave him a ticket for failing to stay in his lane.

(They say the third time's a charm, dude. One more awesome stunt should do it.)

I would have cited the driver for being a dumb sh!t in public.

that happened very close to where we live. oh and boy genius fell out the window of a fraternity house last year too. he really needs to just be locked in a room somewhere where he can't hurt anyone else.
