"Stolen" Saab 9-3 flipped onto its roof, into a sand trap

Interesting Saab story happened in 2010 when 20 year old Matthew Diulio rolled his Saab 9-3 into a sand trap on a golf course, then reported it “stolen”.

Well, conveniently enough, not long after this car was found, Matthew F. Diulio reported that his car — a black Saab 9-3 — had been stolen. Look at that — a law-enforcement circle closed nice and neat.

Except that it wasn’t. Turns out that the cops had some suspicions about the whole “stolen” aspect of this, and they arrested Diulio for filing a false police report. Diulio admitted that he and a pal had taken the car for a little impromptu tour of the Topstone Golf Course, and ended up in a most unfortunately placed bunker.

Before cratering, Diulio caused an estimated $10,000 worth of damage to the golf course. We’re betting he won’t be earning it by driving the beer cart.

Thanks to solid construction of Saab 9-3, although it overturned on the roof, did not suffer extensive damage.
