A drunk man who was talking on his cell phone caused a three-car pile-up near Chicago, and he wasn’t even driving.

According to the Chicago Tribune, a 31-year-old intoxicated, and, to make matters worse, cell phone using man crossed Warrenville Road in Naperville, IL, after having visited a bar. Then, all hell broke loose.

Fist, the man was hit by a car. Apparently not seriously, he got up and kept running across the street. He was just about to get hit again when another slammed the brakes. The cell phone toting drunk was unharmed this time. Instead, three cars rear-ended each other. The Chicago Tribune could not ascertain the extent of the injuries to man or cars, nor “the nature of the citation he received from police.”

(Hat tip to you-know-who.)
