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?
