A Brazilian drug dealer was killed by his own stash of marijuana after hitting a tree while trying to avoid the authorities.

It all started when he refused to stop at a road block in Bataguassu, Brazil which led to a three-mile chase from the Federal Highway police. During the high speed run, the trafficker lost control of the car and smashed into a tree.

As a result of the impact, the 500 kg (1,102 lbs) stash of drugs stored in the backseat climbed forward and crushed the driver who died instantly. The car and cargo were confiscated by the Bataguassu police, while identification of the deceased was not possible because the drug dealer wasn’t carrying any sort of ID.
