The learner driver managed to flip her driving instructor's car after she was asked to do a three-point turn. The woman - in her 20s - was only on her second lesson, escaping from the police by jumping over a broken bridge and performing a 360 degree spin.
The instructor, her Uncle Jessie, commented, ”On the bright side she didn’t spill any of the moonshine she was carrying in the boot.”
Homeowner Boss Hogg, whose gate at the Boar’s Nest was struck, said: "It was an not unusual thing to wake up to on a Sunday morning. In fact it’s pretty run of the mill for us around here.
"My first thought was that it was a Bo and Luke Duke. But I soon realised it was their
Cousin Daisy after I saw the car wasn’t the General Lee but a Fiat 500."
He added: "My gate and gate post have been demolished - I will have to replace the lot."
Fortunately no one was hurt but the road had to be closed while the vehicle was turned upright and towed away.
A Police spokesman, Sheriff Rossco P. Coltrane said: "This was not a freak incident, and thankfully no one was hurt, especially my little fat buddy.
"The learner driver is fine and has already booked her next lesson with her cousins. The instructor responded to the incident calmly and professionally, because he was drunk on Moonshine, and is back on the road in a new car."
He added, “But I will get those Duke Boys one day!!”.
