Canada Traffic Cop Gets The Finger, Literally

WINDSOR, Ontario (UPI) — A Canadian traffic cop in southwestern Ontario who pulled over a speeding car wasted little time in rushing a man with a severed middle finger to a hospital.

The unidentified Ontario Provincial Police officer pulled over a car midday Tuesday near Leamington. The unidentified driver told her his passenger had accidentally severed his finger while working on a motorcycle.

The two men had the finger in a bag.

The policewoman radioed a message ahead to a hospital and rushed the injured man in her cruiser to a doctor prepared to do re-attachment surgery, the Amherstburg Echo reported.

She didn’t give the driver a speeding ticket, for which the OPP said in a release was commendable along with her prompt response to a medical emergency, the Windsor Star reported.

There was no word midday Wednesday if the surgery was successful.
