Talk Show Host Beck Wrecks Rented SUV
Glenn Beck’s daughter’s weekend wedding celebration could have ended tragically when the radio talk show host was involved in an accident involving the SUV he had rented for the occasion.
Luckily, only the rental car was totaled and Beck was unharmed when he parked the vehicle adjacent to a hill in Finger Lakes, New York without setting the parking brake.
No one was in the SUV when it starting to tumble down the hillside, although Beck’s wife initially tried to grab onto the doorhandle to prevent the car from sliding further.
Beck reported to his fans on Twitter that the car was totaled after it rolled end over end completely to the bottom of the embankment.
“So my rental car got totaled this weekend…at my daughter’s wedding,” Beck confirmed on Twitter.
He later discused the accident on his talk show.
“I see my wife dressed in her evening gown from the wedding, and she’s holding on to the door handle of the car as the car is starting to slide down the hill, and I just said ‘Let it go honey,’” Beck said on his show.
“I watched my car roll down the hill, literally roll.”
He also lauded a member of his security staff for bravery because the man rushed to the car thinking Beck’s son was still inside, but managed to jump clear before it began its tumble.
“It was like an action movie,” Beck added.
“This is like the end of ‘Father of the Bride,'” he said. “Everything you’ve done. It’s in God’s hands now.”
