Aussie Man Crashes Into Truck And Is Hospitalised After Laughing So Hard At Joke

Aussie Man Crashes Into Truck And Is Hospitalised After Laughing So Hard At Joke

Everyone has that one joke that leaves them in absolute stitches.

Whether it brings a tear to your eye, makes you wheeze until you can't breathe or causes an almighty pain in your stomach from chuckling so hard, it's always good to have a zinger up your sleeve.

But these jokes need to be said at the right time, otherwise it can cause some serious damage. Just ask this Queensland man who wound up in hospital for nearly a week after hearing a cracker of a joke while he was driving.

Shaun Kelly was listening to the 4KQ radio breakfast show as he was driving on the M1 in Brisbane last year.

The hosts of the show Laurel, Mark & Gary were talking about kids growing up and it's here where Shaun was left howling with laughter.

Mr Kelly called 4KQ this week to explain to them what happened: "You [Laurel] were talking about your son getting his beard cut, and you mentioned him getting his little curls cut and Gary said 'and his beard?' he said.

"I thought that was hilarious, I was driving on the highway and started belly laughing, I crashed into the back of a truck and got knocked unconscious."

While a joke can usually leave us giggling for a while after the punchline was said, this particular zinger left Shaun laughing even when he woke up from the crash.

Loads of people had gathered around him to see if he was okay and instead of reassuring them, he told them how he ended up in the mishap.

"I told them [the story] and they started laughing, then the ambulance came up they said 'stop making him laugh he could be hurt,' so I told the ambulance people and they started laughing."

It was a similar scene when he was transported to hospital, with staff there kept howling over why he was brought to the Emergency Department.

Shaun continued to say on 4KQ: "I was in hospital for six days, and for six days I swear the nurses and doctors every day asked 'can you please tell us the story of what happened.'"

He admitted to the Courier Mail that the hosts just have the easy ability to make him laugh from side to side. Mr Kelly has nearly crashed his car once before because of listening to the show and his wife has been so worried about his safety that she's banned him from it.
