Skip the middle man.

A driver who sped through a cemetery in an apparent road-rage incident has died after crashing his car into a mausoleum.

Police said the man was chasing a car that had cut him off Sunday. His classic 1967 Corvette skidded out of control on a turn in the Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Hayward and crashed in front of mourners watching a nearby burial.

The identity of the 52-year-old man was not immediately released. Police said he was chasing a Mercedes-Benz convertible through the cemetery after an apparent argument on a nearby street.

A pair of crypts inside the mausoleum were jarred open, but the caskets inside weren't damaged.

Police said they want to question the driver of the other car that kept going after the crash. The Mercedes driver is being sought as a witness but is not thought to have caused the crash.

Nothing like drive-thru service into the afterlife.
