Remember the movie National Lampoon's Vacation? The movie told the story of the Griswold family driving cross country from Chicago to go to the amusement park Walley World in Los Angeles. With them for the journey was old Aunt Edna. Poor Aunt Edna didn't do so well along the way, though, and passed away before arriving. So the Griswold's forged ahead, simply strapping Edna to the roof for the rest of the journey. This news story below isn't the exact same situation, but it was a good opportunity to make a National Lampoon's Vacation reference!
This story is much creepier. A Michigan man traveled from his home to an Arizona mental health facility to pick up a woman he was supposedly in a relationship with. On the way home, they stopped at a rest stop. When the woman got back in the van, it is believed that she died nearly immediately. Instead of alerting authorities, dude just kept driving. And driving. All the way back to Michigan! He just propped the woman up in the passenger seat, put a pair of sunglasses on her and things were business as usual for him. To top it all off, the guy's 92-year-old mother was in her wheelchair in the back of the van and was not given access to a bathroom for the 26 hour drive. This is all horrible.
