US woman blames coffee-drinking parrot for car crash

Uniontown, Pa: A woman blamed her coffee-drinking pet parrot for distracting her moments before she crashed her car into a guardrail in Pennsylvania, state police say.

Troopers from Uniontown say the 35-year-old woman was driving on a South Union Township road just before 5 pm on April 14 when she noticed the bird pecking at the lid of her coffee cup. The woman says she struck the guardrail when she glanced down to see what the bird was doing.

The woman told police that the bird likes to drink coffee and they also found bird seed in a cup holder next to the coffee and a few feathers nearby. Police say the woman broke her arm and had facial cuts because her airbag deployed. The bird was safely removed from the vehicle.
