Pants-less Detroit driver’s death a tragedy, but lewd acts not uncommon

If you haven’t heard by now, a Detroit man died early on Sunday after being partially ejected from his vehicle following a crash on an on-ramp on Interstate 75 in Michigan.

The victim, 58-year-old Clifford Ray Jones was reportedly watching a pornographic movie on his phone before the crash, according to a report from CBS Detroit. The crash occurred at around 3:30 a.m. Sunday. No other vehicles were involved.

Michigan State Police note that Jones wasn’t wearing pants at the time of his demise.

While Jones’ death is certainly tragic, it nevertheless serves as a reminder that this sort of *ahem* “distracted driving” is perhaps more common than the average driver would think.

We’ve seen posts about this story on social media with hundreds of comments of truckers sharing their stories of close encounters and unwitting over-exposures to other drivers’ shall we say, intimate moments? It really gives new meaning to the phrase “the open road”…

So tell us truckers, what’s the craziest thing you’ve ever seen on the open that probably should’ve transpired behind closed doors?


  1. The question should be what haven't I seen. been on the road for the past 42 and a half yrs. 5 million miles and still driving and man ever time I think I have seen it all something else comes along to make me shake my head. really there isn't much I haven't seen people doing. in cars, trucks, buses, vans on motorcycles.. so in keeping it G Rated for all general audiences just use your imagination because believe me when I say there are some weird puppies out on the highway.. I have seen things my eyes hope to never see again. There have been a few nice surprises and met a few interesting people, but for the most part I was glad they were in their vehicle and not in my truck..

    1. Like you frank I have seen it all in 38 yrs of driving, I can just hear ST PETER now asking him what happened to your pants
