hearse driver who was transporting a body in a casket was found dead behind the wheel of the vehicle in Beverly Hills, according to police.  Police do not suspect foul play, California’s KTLA reports

A statement by Beverly Hills police says officers were called to investigate a person slumped behind the wheel of a hearse that was parked Monday near a hotel on Crescent Drive, just north of Sunset Bouelvard, KTLA says.

“The operator of the hearse was discovered deceased in the driver’s seat,” the statement says. “The hearse was on duty and in the process of transporting a decedent.”


“Eh–say what?”

The cold arm of the Grim Reaper reached out and touched the driver.  Or the cold arm of the dude in the casket.
