Aw! This Grandpa Was Surprised By His Dream Car When It Plowed Him Down During A Deadly Hit And Run

With so much negativity in the news these days, it’s nice to to here a story like this!

After years of putting his family first, adorable grandfather George Sturgeon was surprised with his dream car when its driver blindsided him on a local crosswalk.

Can we get a collective “awwwwwwww”?

Mr. Sturgeon had collected posters of the model for decades, a vintage 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300SL, and replica Hot Wheels litter his work-desk at the union office. The exact make and model, with the classic ruby red finish, had no time to stop before crushing Sturgeon to death in the street on which he raised his family of four. Needless to say, he was speechless!

For years, the closest Mr. Sturgeon got to the stunning sports coupe was at the annual Auto Show in downtown Phoenix, where he’d wait all morning for just a moment in the front seat of his beloved gull-winged roadster. That all changed when the very same grand tourer dragged his lifeless body for several meters down Cooper Ave. How sweet is that?!


Framed photographs and sketch outlines depicting the 300SL’s sleek design had accumulated in the Sturgeon household, polished twice weekly by George himself. Now, the police are using them to track down his killer. You go, gramps!
