And I Thought My Car Was Bad......

Take a look at this woman's car!

She actually had so much trash in the floorboard of her car, that it eventually caused her to have a crash.

According to police, there was so much trash inside 53-year-old Ann Biglan's Ford Focus, it completely filled the inside from the floor to the ceiling front and back.

The copious amounts of trash apparently caused the crash. Biglan told police several old coffee cups and pieces of trash fell onto the gas and brake pedal, which caused her to lose control while backing out of a parking space near the West Yarmouth Post Office.

Police said the trash that fell on the gas pedal caused the Focus to pick up speed, drive over a curb, across Route 28, hit a Ford Explorer and back over a sidewalk. Biglan's car finally came to a rest after crashing into a flowerpot in the parking lot of the West Yarmouth Mobil gas station.

So then they go to her home.....

The car jammed with shopping bags and trash send police to a Yarmouth woman's home. "It's not a very livable condition that you want to see… We want to get her some help," said Sgt. Gerard Britt of the Yarmouth Police Department.

It's surrounded by bags and three cars full of household items and debris.

"It looks like items she purchased and is continuing to hold onto for whatever reason. She's hoarding all this," said Britt.

Right now, there is no way in or out around the house. There is so much stuff inside the home, the front door is bowed out.

Turns out she's got an obsessive compulsive disorder that includes hoarding as one of the symptoms. Police moved her out of her house and the house will be condemned by the city and the Health Department.
