The 58-year-old man, who was not wearing pants or a seat belt, was partially ejected through the sunroof of the car, the story said. He was identified by the Associated Press as Clifford Ray Jones.

Re: Detroit man watching porn on phone dies in car accident

Funny, that didn't make the local news (had to come here to find out what's going on in my own neighborhood, ) ... I'm gonna' have get ahold of Channel 2 and discuss content with them, .

"The accident occurred Sunday at 3:30 a.m. as the car was traveling south on the Lodge ramp to Interstate 75 in Detroit, said police." This tells me all I need to know, the ramps on/off the Lodge are short & tight. It was probably icing up around that time too, both hands on the wheel brutha!

Yes that is how it works.

"The criterion for the awards states, "In the spirit of Charles Darwin, the Darwin Awards commemorate individuals who protect our gene pool by making the ultimate sacrifice of their own lives. Darwin Award winners eliminate themselves in an extraordinarily idiotic manner, thereby improving our species' chances of long-term survival."[2]

Accidental self-sterilization also qualifies; however, the site notes: "Of necessity, the award is usually bestowed posthumously." But the candidate is disqualified if "innocent bystanders", who might have contributed positively to the gene pool, are killed in the process."

From the story it appeared that the driver had one hand on the phone and the other on the "stick" making it kind of hard to hold the wheel when things get slippery.
