Hot Coffee Spill Blamed For Accident

Here's your cautionary tale for the day: texting and driving isn't the only thing that will leave your car in this condition. Anything that distracts you from paying attention to the road is potentially deadly.

The driver of this car was reportedly drinking coffee while driving, when he spilled some on his lap. When he bent over to clean it up he swerved and hit a power pole. has the story.

Moral of the story: stop drinking coffee, playing with the radio, punching addresses into your GPS, flirting with other drivers, reaching into the backseat, putting on lipstick, talking on the phone, digging for change under your seat, looking for a map in the glove box, cleaning steam off the inside of the window, petting your dog, eating cereal, painting your nails, and anything else that takes your eyes, or your mind, off the road.
