Quebec – A man is facing some serious charges after his friend couch surfed into the grill of an oncoming car.
For those of you unaware, couch surfing is when idiots sit on a couch tied to a vehicle and are dragged down the street at high speeds. There are a slew of videos out there featuring the stunt and honestly, it’s amazing we haven’t had more stories like this one before now.
In this case, 21-year-old Alex Labbé was driving a van towing three friends down a country road as they sat on a couch. During their trip, the couch swerved into the opposite lane and was struck by an oncoming vehicle. One of the men on the couch, 20-year-old François Hallé (pictured), was severely injured.
Instead of rendering aid to his friend sprawled out in the middle of the street, Labbé fled the scene. Hallé was transported to the hospital where he would later die. Labbé would later be arrested at his home and charged with dangerous driving causing death, fleeing the scene of an accident and criminal negligence causing death.Tags: Alex Labbé, Canada, couch surfing, Crime, François Hallé
