BERLIN (October 11, 2013)--A newlywed German man had some explaining to do after he left his bride behind at a highway gas station as the two returned home to Berlin after honeymooning in France.
The woman was sleeping in the back of the couple’s van when her husband pulled into the gas station late Thursday in the town of Bad Hersfield.
Her husband didn’t realize that she had gotten up to use a restroom and he drove off before she returned, assuming she was still sleeping.
He didn’t realize she wasn’t in the van until he was about 2½ hours down the road.
He called police, who assured him she was patiently waiting.
