Vehicle made out of snow fools police officers

Simon Laprise said it took him four hours to build the snowy auto that was made famous in the 1980s film "Back to the Future", according to a report by the New York Daily News.

The 33-year-old machinist and artist from Montreal was hoping to prank snow removal crews in his neighborhood with a fake vehicle he made after a storm Monday, modeled after the Delorean DMC-12 of Back to the Future fame.

Naturally, since this isn't a real auto, we're not entirely sure what it's a replica of, but we've included a photo of the real DMC-12 below for comparison's sake.

Laprise (above) said that he never meant to trick officers with his vehicle - just snow removal workers.

Simon Laprise created a fake Deloreon out of snow that received attention from police officers.

A Car Somehow Crashed Into the Second Story of a California Building
The Santa Ana Police Department said that the driver was going at a very high rate of speed when they hit the center median. Officials say that one person who was in the vehicle managed to get out while crews had to rescue the second person.

It took the creator 4 hours to sculpt, but it had the desired effect.

Laprise said the auto was destroyed when the roads were cleared, according to the Daily News.

"You made our evening", the officer wrote, in French, on a ticket posted by Laprise.

A shot earlier in the night shows how much effort went into making the DeLorean.
