Something Smells Fishy

Some things are so perfect you could not make them up. A woman driving a Cooper Mini was so distracted because she was masturbating that she rear ended a seafood truck. TA DA!

Third Time’s A Charm

Trucker hits 3, count 'em, 3 overpasses with the crane he's hauling before he stops. I guess 2 wasn't enough and 4 would have been overkill.

Nudist Lost In Woods

A man staying at a nudist camp in the Poconos got lost in the woods. He was missing from some time Monday to Wednesday evening. Three days. Nude. In the woods. Bet it wasn't the vacation he planned.

Smoking Is Deadly

If you are going to haul gun powder around on the front seat of your car then perhaps DON'T light a cigarette. Or better yet, don't haul gun powder around at all. Darwin Award averted for now.

Distracted Driving

People do crazy things while driving; texting, putting on makeup, even reading. But pulling a tooth, that's a new one and while driving a big rig as well. Of course he wrecked or it wouldn't be news would it?

Burning Railroad Bridge Collapses Like Dominoes

Second this week on a theme -- bridges being destroyed!! This fire in Texas was too high and hot to fight, so as the fire lit the creosote soaked railroad ties, it was only a matter of time before the collapse.

Stuff happens. It's great when cameras are rolling.
