STRANGE BUT TRUE: Man Says Mouse Attack Caused Car Crash

A 52-year-old man from Akron, Ohio, says three not-so-blind mice ganged up on him while he was driving them to his friend’s house with the intent of feeding them to a snake. Kenneth Henry told WJW Channel 8 that he was so startled by the rodents, which escaped from a box from a pet store, that he drove into a curb and ran into a tree.

"I’m just driving, and I’m two doors away from their house, and all of a sudden they were all over me. So I grabbed one and threw it down, then I hit the curb and the bag jumped out and I couldn’t control the car after that," Henry told the TV station.

Crash witness Shanna Ferrell says she ran to the scene to help Henry.

"I came running over to him, and you could see the mice and him shooing them away and I thought, ‘What?’ There were mice in the car, and then we looked back and there were mice running everywhere," she told the TV station.

Henry injured his ankle in the crash. Although he blamed the incident on mice, police charged him with failure to control his vehicle and driving without a license.

Henry pleaded guilty and paid a fine and says he won’t be transporting mice anytime soon, unless they’re in a container they can’t escape from.
