Distracted driving due to texting, phone calls, eating and tuning the radio are activities well known to contribute to motor vehicle accidents. In fact, just yesterday, I saw a woman taking a selfie of herself and her dog while driving down a busy Phoenix street. However, this is a first - the Alabama Highway Patrol reports that a semi-truck driver crashed on the highway while removing his hands from the steering wheel in order to pull out a loose tooth. The tooth was found in his pocket as evidence.
