Motorists in upstate New York this time of year have to be alert for deer, not Jet Skis. But that's just what one driver slammed into in the Adirondacks. Police told the Post-Star of Glens Falls that 60-year-old Betty Marriott, of Brant Lake, was headed north on Interstate 87 around 5 p.m. Thursday when her BMW smashed into an object in the highway in Warrensburg, 60 miles north of Albany.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

Police say the object turned out to be a 1994 Kawasaki Jet Ski that had been abandoned along the side of the highway.

Marriott wasn't hurt, but her car sustained extensive damage to its front end.

The watercraft was destroyed. Police are trying to find its owner.
