You’ll never guess why this Fort Lauderdale driver nearly lost his penis in a car accident

Fort Lauderdale, FL – A Fort Lauderdale man paid a heavy price for distracted driving and sustained a severe injury to his groin in a very unusual type of car accident. According to local police, the driver was receiving oral sex when he lost control of the car smashing into a FedEx van. The drivers that happened to be in the area were shocked to see the guy lying on the road grabbing at his almost bitten-off penis in a state of visible distress. His girlfriend was in an equally compromising position, with the jeans around her ankles revealing her underwear. 

Fortunately, all those involved in the head-on collision sustained only mild injuries, well, except for the SUV driver who will need some time to recover.

Over the past few months, there were several reports of car accidents caused by vehicular fellatio. Last November, a Florida couple had a great time engaging in oral sex in the back of a police car, apparently unaware that the dash cam recorded their romp.

Not all such incidents are funny, though. Last year, a California construction worker killed a man in a crash caused by too much excitement. And it wasn’t just the sex, as tests showed the guy was also drunk and on drugs.

What can you do if you are injured in a car accident caused by distracted driving?

Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of car accidents in Florida. In most cases, however, it’s not about sex, but about our modern obsession with our cellphones. Talking on the phone while driving is not illegal in Florida, but texting is. Under a law signed by Gov. Ron DeSantis in 2019, texting at the wheel is a primary traffic offense. This refers to any form of texting, including email and instant messaging. Reading a message is also illegal as the driver’s attention will be distracted for at least a few seconds.

Other forms of distracted driving include:

  • Eating in the car as the driver will take his or her hands off the wheel
  • Talking to other passengers, especially trying to calm down children or pets
  • Personal grooming

If you are injured in a car accident caused by distracted driving you need to get proof of what the other driver was doing at the time of the crash.

In the above-mentioned Fort Lauderdale crash, the fact that the driver and his girlfriend were having sex was quite obvious given their state of undress and the injury to the man’s penis.

On the other hand, if the other driver was texting, your lawyers may need to get a subpoena to check their phone activity at the time of the crash.

You can help your future personal injury claim by taking pictures and talking to those present at the scene, who may be called to testify if you sue the other driver. Make sure to take the eyewitnesses’ names and contact info. 

How can you recover damages for a crash caused by distracted driving?

Since Florida is a no-fault state you will first turn to your Personal Injury Protection, which will cover 80% of your medical expenses and 60% of your lost wages.

However, if you don’t have enough coverage, you may need to sue the other driver. In this type of lawsuit, your Fort Lauderdale car accident lawyers will have to prove that the other driver was negligent and this led to the crash. For that, they’ll need to prove that the other driver was distracted and show exactly what they were doing.
