The Dangers of Smoking Are Real

An unnamed man was backing out of his Aurora, Colo., driveway while smoking a cigarette. The lit cigarette dropped down the front of his jacket, so the driver jumped out of his van to try to avoid being burned. In his haste, the man fell under the van and the driver’s side tire rolled over his head. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition, but is expected to survive. Police do not anticipate any charges being filed, and say alcohol was not a factor. (MS/KUSA Denver) ...Nope, just plain old obliviocy.
