Student takes Snapchat selfie while driving, hits police car
Don't Snapchat pics while driving please.
This is the appeal U.S. police has launched after a 19-year-old crashed into a police car while taking a Snapchat selfie.
Miranda Rader, 19, has been arrested in Bryan, Texas, after the accident, which caused the airbag to deploy.
Police said Rader, a student at Texas A&M University, collided the patrol vehicle while sending topless pictures to her boyfriend through Snapchat. No one was injured in theincident.
The officer whose car had been hit said Rader had an "unclasped brassiere" and was trying to put on her blouse.
The arresting officer wrote in an affidavit: "I asked her why she was not dressed while driving and she stated she was taking a Snapchat photo to send to her boyfriend while she was at a red light."
Rader was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated and released from jail on Thursday morning on a $2,000 (£1,600) bail bond.
