Pulling Teeth Causes Massive Traffic Jam

A distracted driver was responsible for a huge traffic jam in Alabama over the weekend. The driver wasn't looking at a cell phone or fumbling with the radio — he was trying to yank out his own tooth, according to ABC News.

The accident was caused when a self-employed 18-wheeler driver took his hands off the wheel to pull a loose tooth out of his mouth.

“The driver stated he lost control when he was pulling a tooth with his hands,” the report reads. “He had the tooth in his shirt pocket as proof.”

Thankfully no one was seriously hurt. Sometimes it is worth going to a dentist instead of taking matters into your own hands!
