Darwin Nominee: Man was “watching” porn while driving before fatal crash – What a JERK!


The Michigan State Police Department said Tuesday that a man died after rolling his car on the ramp from the Lodge to I-75 was watching pornography while driving.

The accident happened early Sunday morning just after 3:30. Michigan State Police troopers were called to the ramp from the Lodge to southbound I-75 on a one-car accident. The preliminary investigation revealed the driver of the car was watching a movie while behind the wheel, police said on Monday.

The driver was not wearing a seat belt when he lost control and rolled the car. He was partially ejected through the sunroof and died on scene.

On Tuesday, FOX 2 was speaking with Michigan State Police troopers about a different story when MSP revealed the man had been watching pornography and masturbating while driving. MSP also said the 58-year-old man was not wearing pants at the time of the crash.

Michigan State Police Lt. Mike Shaw said it’s the strangest thing he’s ever encountered on the roadway.

“We see people putting on makeup, we see people doing different things as far as hygiene, as far as reading books, it’s almost to the fact there’s so much technology out there a lot of people are more paying attention to what they’re doing other than driving their cars,” Shaw said.

The victim, who was behind the wheel of a 1996 Toyota, was thrown from the vehicle and died. He wasn’t wearing pants.

No others drivers were struck.

“Driver inattention is the leading factor in most crashes and near-crashes,” the Michigan State Police website says, citing the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Virginia Tech Transportation Institute.
