Woman crashes car while shaving her crotch
And you thought it was dangerous to text while driving.
A two-car crash on a Florida highway was caused by a 37-year-old woman who was shaving her bikini area while in the driver's seat. Her ex-husband was steering from the passenger's seat.
Megan Barnes and her ex-husband Charles Judy slammed into the back of a pick-up driven by David Schoff after he slowed to take a turn.
Barnes said she was meeting her boyfriend and wanted to be "ready for the visit," trooper Gary Dunick explained.
Barnes and Judy allegedly drove another half-mile before switching seats. When they were pulled over, Judy claimed to have been driving. The trooper noticed burns on Judy's chest from the passenger-side airbag, which disproved their story. The airbag in the steering wheel apparently did not deploy.
Three passengers – a man and two women – were treated for minor injuries.
Barnes had been driving with a suspended license, just a day after being convicted for DUI. She was sentenced to nine months of probation, and her license was revoked for five years.
Now, Barnes is being charged with reckless driving, driving with a revoked license, leaving the scene of a crash with injuries, and driving with no insurance. She could face a year in jail if found guilty of violating her probation.
Judy was not charged in the crash. (info from CBS News)
