“A time-worn excuse for failing to hand in one’s homework has been offered as the reason that a red bra triggered a rollover accident last month on northbound I-75 in Wood County.
The dog ate it.
The driver of a car containing four teenage girls, Tabitha Adams, 17, of Bowling Green, told the Ohio Highway Patrol that one of her passengers took the bra off underneath a shirt because the family dog had chewed it earlier that day, causing it to fray.
Emily Davis, 17, of Bowling Green admitted that it was her bra that broke and later flew from the car’s antenna on Sept. 26 along I-75 in Middleton Township, according to a 24-page state patrol crash report released yesterday.
Two Toledo men in a trailing 2006 Dodge Neon were injured when driver James Campbell told troopers he swerved to avoid the flying bra and his car flipped several times in the grass median.
Asked by Trooper C.R. Hasty what lane they were in when the accident occurred, Mr. Campbell’s passenger, Jeff Long, replied: “The fast lane.”
