Teen Driver Couldn't See Through Cloud of Pot Smoke, Rammed Police Car



A teenager is facing serious consequences after ramming into a police car and breaking an officer's leg.

Benjamin Saurini, 19, says he had trouble seeing out of his windshield on Friday because of the pot smoke fogging up his car windows. Saurini admitted he was trying to flee police near Melbourne, Australia, after smoking cannabis in the car with some friends.

Driving away from the scene, he panicked and side-swiped a police cruiser—pinning a senior constable against the car and breaking the officer's leg. The constable is still in the hospital after undergoing surgery on Monday.
