The sheriff ignores an old prospector who claims he was almost run over by a driverless car in the desert. Once a geologist's wife is seriously injured by the same automobile, he takes matters seriously. The lawman determines that the vehicle is radio-controlled, but don't know who's operating it or why it's hitting people. Written by

This is the tale of a runaway jalopy, loose on the desert. It tears around without a driver. An old prospector type sees it first and talks the sheriff into checking it out. The young wife of a newlywed couple is struck by the car, but an ambulance appears out of the blue as well as a specialist in brain trauma. The police can't seem to catch the darned thing so it keeps right on going. One issue that never comes up is why it didn't run out of gas. Eventually, another man is hit by the car and he knows things about it. The "whys" of this story are so badly answered that one can't help but find it simply amusing. Had it not been for the young woman nearly dying, it would have been comedic. Either don't miss this one or stay a few miles away.
