Beverly Hills, CA – Apparently, you can be late for your own funeral. A hearse was found parked near the Beverly Hills Hotel on Monday afternoon with two bodies inside: its driver, a woman, deceased in the front seat, and another body, also deceased, in a casket.

The all white hearse was found on Crescent Dr., just north of Sunset Blvd at around 3pm. The LA Weekly reported that police believe the vehicle may have been there several hours before a passerby reported that the driver was slumped at the wheel. Police do not believe the driver was a resident of Beverly Hills or staying at the hotel, and that it appears she died of natural causes.

The identity of the previously deceased, or the funeral home it was headed to, has not yet been released.
