A woman driver was today cut from the wreckage of her crashed vehicle on the A27 near Brighton. Police investigators have hinted that the woman may well have been applying make-up, talking on a mobile phone, changing the tune on her in-car i-pod, brushing her hair, and smiling seductively at an overtaking male driver of a Porsche with a realistic salon suntan when she lost control of the vehicle.
"She's a lucky lady, for sure," a spokesman from Sussex Police told us. "If she'd lost control when she was applying her nail varnish as well, she could have been in real trouble. We'd like to remind lady drivers, that whilst they may be handy around the house, when they start to social network and get all tarted up behind the wheel, this multi-tasking myth becomes redundant."
In depth research by reporters further reveals that 11% of female driven road traffic accidents stem from the female driver asking a male passenger if they look fat, then gawking at the response and losing control of the vehicle.
The lady cut free from the crashed vehicle on the A27 near that tunnel thing near Brighton was rushed to hospital by fork lift truck.
It is anticipated that she will make a full recovery, once the Ladyshave has been surgically removed from an intimate part of her anatomy.
More as we get it.
