‘It’s Ok, She’s Gonna Be 16 Soon…’
Yeah...that's never a good excuse. This is "Crappy News" for Wednesday, July 18th.
Lowell, IN- A truck driver crashed his rig...because of a bug.
28-year-old Christopher Walker was driving his semi on the Interstate Thursday morning when a fly entered the cab of his truck through the window. Walker lost control of the truck when he attempted to swat the fly, causing him to hit a guardrail on the side of the road.
The truck then struck a concrete construction barrier. That collision made the trailer come loose and split open, emptying 42,000 pounds of plastic rolls onto the highway.
Walker received a ticket for unsafe lane movement. [UPI]
Redlands, CA- A flasher's cheap thrill almost got him killed.

Surveillance cameras from local businesses identified Molina as the attacker.
The unnamed man is facing charges for indecent exposure, while Molina was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon. [KTLA-TV]
