Not that they're likely to listen, but here's a piece of advice for enterprising drug dealers.
Do not crash your car if there is a half-ton of marijuana in the back seat.
A Brazilian drug smuggler was killed when he crashed while being chased by police, and it wasn't the tree he ran into that finished the job. Instead, if was the 1,100 pounds of weed that came barreling forward and crushed him against the steering wheel.
Federal police started the chase when the man didn't stop at a road block, Jalopnik reports, citing local media.
The chase went on for three miles before the as-yet-unidentified man lost control of his car and was killed by his large stash.
