BATAGUASSU, BRAZIL — Reports of a Brazilian drug trafficker being killed by his own marijuana when he was crushed to death by a substantial amount of marijuana.

Police say, the man was killed when he crashed into a tree while being chased by the Federal Highway Police. The impact from the crash resulted in 1,100 pounds of weed to come barreling forward which ended up crushing him against the steering wheel.

Police chased him because he refused to stop at a roadblock that was located in Bataguassu, Brazil.

Police have not been able to identify the man due to him not carrying any identification.
