Florida Man Attempts To Jump Canal

I don’t know if it was inspiration from Evil Knievel, the opening scene of Dukes of Hazards or just a plain hold my beer moment.

But a Florida man in Cape Coral tried to launch his truck twenty feet across a canal late Thursday night. According to Cape Coral Police, suspect Jesse Hurley was speeding and failed to stop at a stop sign.

Later he was seen speeding through a vacant lot and almost jumped Frontier Canal.

Hurley was then caught and hospitalized for his injuries and given criminal traffic citations and a notice to appear in court.
