“Dead Woman” Shows Up To Renew Driver Licence
In a world where people turn themselves in for killing their imaginary friends, anything, honestly can happen.
Eva Brown will celebrate her 60th birthday in August. It’s a birthday she says she’ll never forget because, according to the DMV, she’s been dead for nearly two years.
“I think I look pretty good for a dead woman,” Brown chuckled.
Brown and her husband Ray were using the DMV’s online system to change the address on her driver’s license.
The system could not locate her records. The couple then called customer service.
“I was told I’ve been dead sine June 20th of 2013,” Soulis explained.
According to the Brown’s, the customer service agent told them the mistake was probably due to a keystroke error.
“It seems like someone input the wrong license number, maybe by a digit or so,” Ray Brown speculated.
Eva said trying too prove to the DMV that she was alive over the phone was not enough. She said she had to jump through another set of hoops before she got her driver’s license.
“I need to bring my actual license that I have, my marriage license. I need my social security card. I need to also give them two forms of identification, and mail.”
But there was another issue, the couple married nearly 30 years ago in Maryland. If they could not locate their marriage license they would have had to pay for a new one, costing them extra money.
“It’s very frustrating that I have to prove I’m alive how’d they prove I’d died?”
