She flipped her 1997 Honda Accord on a curve in the road and was upside down in the vehicle, according to passersby, and the police report from the Athens-Clark County Sheriff's Office. They told police that incredibly, she was still on the phone.

hope she never gets her license back. With so much lack of consideration for the lives of other people, she should have to walk everywhere to contemplate why she's walking. Of course, she'll probably be on the phone yacking, walking in front of a car, whose driver will then be charged w/ vehicular manslaughter. Sigh.

Drunk woman was on the phone talking in overturned car and it will happen again with somebody else. Distracted driving, Drunk driving, etc., etc., etc., it's all the same – somebody's gonna' get hurt or dead. Upside down cell phone driving blond will get you nowhere fast.

Another instance of a young driver doing what she should not be doing. In this case, driving drunk and talking on the phone while driving. At least she wasn't texting.

There are people out there who think they can multitask well. Anyone "can" multitask, but you only have so much to work with at the start. The more things tried to be done at the same time, the less there is for each item 'getting' done.

I personally think keeping a ton of metal and plastic undamaged, and keeping it from damaging other things, should take considerable amount of that 'total available' attention.

Woman, drunk, and talking on the phone. Deadly combination.
