A woman driver caused a pile-up after becoming distracted while shaving her bikini line.
Megan Mariah Barnes, 37, crashed into the back of a truck in the Florida Keys after giving her ex-husband the wheel as she shaved her private parts.
Barnes was driving to meet her boyfriend in Key West and told police she wanted to be "ready for the visit," website WJZ.com reported.
Highway Trooper Gary Dunick said: "If I wasn't there, I wouldn't have believed it.
"About 10 years ago I stopped a guy in the exact same spot ... who had three or four syringes sticking out of his arm. It was just surreal and I thought, 'Nothing will ever beat this.' Well, this takes it."
Barnes should not have been driving in the first place. The day before the accident she was banned for five years for drink driving.
