This local story from Laurel County, Kentucky is a strong contender for the year’s peculiar story.
What starts out as an innocent report about a car crash turns into something much more unique when the story’s eyewitness is introduced. Local farmer Gary Lee Anderson gives the reporter his play-by-play account of the accident, and you have to hear it to believe it.
“I just had got done feeding my chickens – watering them and stuff – and I walked back to my house there to get my phone so I could play a video game on it,” said Gary Lee Anderson, who lives on the road and saw it all happen. “And all of a sudden I heard a big ‘boom,’ and I looked back out my door and the electric pole fell and the lines were falling. And the GeoTracker was sideways into the fence.”
It’s a story full of high speed crashes, drugs and bee attacks, but the best part is the way Gary Lee calmly tells it with his delightful accent. He might not measure up to the dancing farmer, but he’s definitely a close second.
Just listen to how he describes the couple “screaming and squalling” running around like “a chicken with the head cut off” while the bees chase them.
And the guy came out, screaming and squalling, and running around about like a chicken with its head cut off,” Anderson said.
He continues narrating, “I told him, ‘You need to get out of that water,’but I didn’t know he was getting eat up by bees, I thought he was just high.”
Even the news anchor was struggling to keep a straight face when the video cuts back to him. This is just one of those stories that only happens in the country.
Anderson ends his narration hoping that other people could have learned a lesson or two in this incident. “I’d say by today they are [learning their lesson],” Anderson said. “If they feel like my leg feels, I’d say they’re learning.
“I’d say they’re itching real good,” he said. “Because my ankle’s itching. I think it’s that poison from them bees.”
