Car Drives to Mechanic with Half an Engine Missing

Occurred on August 4, 2015 / Santa Barbara, California, USA

Info from Licensor: "The owner of this 2013 Volskwagon TDI with just under 13,000 miles on it came to the dealership I worked at as a technician. The woman’s son was apparently using the car the night before. While downtown the son had gotten a little rowdy and tipsy, an argument turned to a fight which turned to a car chase. He was being chased and ran right through an elevated roundabout without ever looking back.
The mom went to use her car in the morning and noticed the oil light was on and the engine seemed a bit louder. after checking the dipstick and seeing no oil at all she poured a quart of oil in the engine and closed the hood. She restarted the car and drove almost seven miles to our dealer where I put it on the hoist in my bay. That's when my jaw was left on the ground."
