Personally, I spent a rather quiet New Year’s Eve. I stayed up after midnight but spent the whole night at home. I can confirm that I was not involved in an accident that left a limo in a stream. I can’t imagine waking up in a hungover stupor on January 1st realizing you got home because your designated driver crashed his limo and just left it at the scene.
Drivers in Bourbon County, Kentucky had a strange sight on the first day of the new year. A limo with a trunk-mounted stripper bar was spotted washed up on a slope, in a small cove, and completely abandoned. Hours after the limo left the road, the incident was reported to the Bourbon County Sheriff’s Department.
The police seized the strange vehicle, and its owner opened a GoFundMe page repossess the limo. On the page, owner Troy Jones says, “I want to apologize that my car was put somewhere it never should have been. These are apologies that completely omit any information that might even hint at how the limo ended up in its predicament. So far, only $100 has been donated to reach the $5,500 goal. Do not give your money to this person.
Now back to the externally mounted stripping pole, how could it be used? The vehicles used by most limousine services equipped with verticals the posts are extended SUVs with the post mounted inside. I have to assume the limo has to be stationary for a performer to use the precariously placed prop. However, I know people who are stupid enough to try to put someone on top of the trunk while the limo is rolling down a road.
The vehicle owner claims the pole is for flags, but that is highly unlikely. The height and diameter of the pole, along with the visibly reinforced trunk lid and mounted lights, scream the pole for strippers. I know it might be embarrassing that it became public knowledge that you own this limo, but you made the mistake of crashing it into a stream.
