Ah, yes, I'm sure the female drivers appreciate your lip biting jinx, thanks. I have to say though, being female, I'm a pretty good driver - no wrecks, one speeding ticket back in the day....but it was a doozy and earned me a suspension (110 in a 30) I still say it wasn't my fault, I blame my dad though for handing a 16 yr old me a Camaro w/a 350 in it.

I wonder if it was vehicle failure or the fact that she was wearing a cast and had no feel.

I would bet that it was a combination of driver distraction and the cast on her right leg. Panic caused the second crash after she was told someone was pinned behind the car so naturally she floored it into some other cars. Very unfortunate situation but clearly driver fault. :)

Just the other week my father pressed the gas instead of the brake and destroyed his buddies front porch. Fortunately his oversized soccer mom SUV was OK sans a dent in the bumper which is going to cost $1200... :P

That's kind of what I think too. Curious to see if she ends up in the court reports section of the paper next

That stinks about your father. Hope his friend wasn't too mad!

Please don't go there. In reality, and metaphorically.

Who Are Better Drivers: Men or Women? - MSN Autos

Some studies and statistics on Men to Women ratios of accidents.
I was just joking hence why I mentioned my father being involved in a silly accident, but I'll drop my own source for fun:

Men vs. women: who are better drivers? - The Globe and Mail

"Researchers found that women took shorter trips than men, and had a higher number of minor accidents. But men are 70 per cent more likely to be involved a serious crash."

"Vanderbilt says these gender-based differences can’t be used to conclude that either sex is better behind the wheel. As a group, men seem to have the edge when it comes to car handling, but women appear to have better judgment. "
