Washington Driver Blames ‘Gorilla’ For Causing Crash

November 18, 2013

A Spokane, Wash., woman who wound up with a totaled car, a broken collarbone and a $550 ticket blames her post-Halloween crash on a person in a gorilla suit who she says jumped in front of her car.

Hailey Wulz said she plans to contest the negligent driving citation.

Wulz says she had just dropped off a friend early on Nov. 1 when she swerved to avoid the gorilla. It was reported she crashed into a parked car and the crash pushed both vehicles into a yard.

Police report that two witnesses claim the woman was speeding through the 25 mile-an-hour zone.

The driver says she did what she thought was right by swerving. And she says it would be nice if the gorilla came forward “so everything didn’t fall on me.”
