Hang Up and Park!

News of the Weird tells us the marvelous tale of yet another risk users take when talking on their cell phone while operating a motor vehicle. More specifically when parking the motor vehicle. Apparently a student at the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga was having a long leisurely chat on her cell phone while she pulled into her garage. The chat continued as she closed the garage door. The chat distracted her from the next step... Shutting the engine down. She continued her cell phone chat while the carbon monoxide filled her garage, overcame and killed her.

Sounds to me like we have a nominee for a Darwin Award.
