‘Lord Jesus Christ’ struck by car in Northampton
Police responded at around 3:40 p.m. on Tuesday to investigate an incident where a pedestrian was struck by a vehicle while he was in a Main Street crosswalk, Savino said. The man was hurt, but conscious, and handed police his identification, Savino said.
“He was identified from a Massachusetts ID card, so that is his legal name,” Savino added. The card listed his name as Lord Jesus Christ, Savino said.
The hospital said no one named Christ was a patient there today. Efforts to find a home phone number for Christ were unscuccessful.
It’s not hard to see why this was considered newsworthy, at least in the Quirky News department.
The Boston Globe couldn’t track him down, but the CBS News did manage to interview him.
Given Christ’s Very Large haircut, the car driver (who was in the wrong) must have really zoned out not to spot him.
