Auto Repair Injury A Nut Case
A man trying to loosen a stubborn wheel nut blasted the wheel with a 12-gauge shotgun, injuring himself badly in both legs, according to sheriff's deputies in Kitsap County, Washington state. The 66-year-old man had spent two weeks repairing a Lincoln Continental for two weeks at his home. From about arm's length, the man fired the shotgun at the wheel nut and was ``peppered'' in both legs with buckshot and other debris, with some injuries as high on his body as his chin.
FOOTNOTE: Hot shot.
