Breakfast Rider

Citing a police press release, the German news organization Deutsche Welle (DW-World) reported in November 2004 that the reason that motorist Julia Bauer of Bochum, Germany, lost control and smashed into a parked car and a lamppost was that she was preparing cereal and milk on the passenger seat while driving to work and tried to catch her bowl as it was falling to the floor.

The cost of her breakfast (in damages) turned out to be about US$27,000.
