Funeral Home Has Three-Wheeled Hearse With Pedals

EUGENE, Ore. (May 17, 2013)--A funeral home in Eugene, Ore., is offering natural burials in which the dear departed take a final ride to the resting place on the back of a three-wheeled pedal-powered hearse.

Sunset Hills Cemetery and Funeral Home director Wade Lind says he got the idea from bicyclists and designed the pedal-powered hearse himself.

It has an electric motor to give him a little help hauling the casket.

Lind has pedaled five bodies to cemeteries so far and there's a waiting list for the service.

The ride and a bamboo casket that looks like a basket costs about $3,500.
