Wow, another one of these just happened two weeks ago. How ironic.

Woman crashes SUV cutting off her arm

Well if an SUV was cutting off my arm, I'd crash it, too.

And also, a good driver can drive and talk on the phone at the same time. A bad driver is dangerous even when they're paying full attention. Don't try to tell me how to live, submitter, via scary stories.

A distracted driver is a distracted driver, regardless of how "good" they are. Hang up and drive.

Damn straight! And only bad drivers can't drive after drinking a six-pack of Molson.

I see too many people not paying attention when using a cell phone and driving that I'm skeptical it's only the "bad" drivers who are distracted.

I am sincere in saying she should applaud her effort at multitasking.

I refuse to use my phone and drive. Not a habit I want to start.

Both were wearing seat-belts, ergo it was the belts and not the phone. (coff)

This is exactly why you should never try to cut off your arm while driving an SUV.

Why not link directly the article?

All of these chains of trackbacks and endless blog circle-jerking really get on my nerves. Of course, it's only one extra step here, but I've seen instances where I saw a story on a blog, and had to click on a link to another blog, which linked to another blog, which finally had a link to the actual official information. It's ridiculous.

How does one lose their arm perfectly intact clutching their cellphone in an automobile crash. I can understand if her was arm was sawed off by a blade, but in a car crash how can your arm just get cut off and flown several feet intact...

How long before she sues the cell-phone maker for allowing her to be distracted while driving?

it took me a good minute of hard thinking to decipher that headline.

While driving and talking on a cell phone is a bad idea, it's not too different from talking to someone that's in the car with you. The only difference is that the reception is not as clear, and you are using only one hand to drive. Plus, you build up concentration while doing so, and that would be a healthy side effect.

minivans aren't the same as SUVs. They're lighter, for one, and have front and side airbags. Also, they're more fuel-efficient than SUVs.

Just throwin' it out there.

rather, its the people who sometimes drive minivans. can't drive. drive. can't. whatever.

oh i dont have kids, i dont really care but i mean if some of the people who (can't) drive those things would learn how to, then i'd be fine with it.

On the phone with her car insurance company and they told her a crash will cost her an arm and a leg.

The funny thing is they've found that all the bad drivers think they're good drivers.

EddieMoscone: minivans aren't the same as SUVs. They're lighter, for one, and have front and side airbags. Also, they're more fuel-efficient than SUVs.

I'm of the opinion that most SUVs (except for pickups) are just minivans that have been raised 1-2 feet into the air, thereby throwing off their center of gravity for the worse.

Look, they're both primarily driven by soccer moms, which makes them both about as masculine as lipstick.

Also, their bumpers are the same height as regular cars. Except for some extra weight, the odds are much more even in a crash against a sedan. Its the SUVs that scare me to death. Head-on with a SUV and you're gonna have its radiator embedded in your teeth.

While driving and talking on a cell phone is a bad idea, it's not too different from talking to someone that's in the car with you.

Generally, your passenger knows enough to shut up when you, the driver, need to actually drive.

I'd never attest to the masculinity of a minivan. 'Cause I'd lose, hands down. It's why I don't drive one. :)

I know I saw a statistical report in the past 30 days that using a headset makes no difference. No matter how you blab on the phone, your likelihood of having an accident goes up the same amount.

/hang up and drive
//and no, I'm not impressed with your bluetooth earpiece
