MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The State Patrol is reminding people not to Netflix and drive after a woman crashed her vehicle while watching the streaming service on her iPad.

Police say numerous calls came in Oct. 26 to report a person crossing over lanes, driving onto the shoulder and driving in and out of the grass on the shoulder on Interstate 94. As troopers approached, the woman ran off the road and crashed into median cables.

The woman admitted she had been watching Netflix on the iPad that was positioned on the passenger seat.

    She was watching the wrong show. She should have been watching “The Road”.

    Anyone watching Netflix when there are other options for entertainment with out the socialist agenda is more then off the road they are out of their mind.

    No cure for stupid.

    Netflix has become a liberal slanted streaming service. Why anybody would feel the need to put other people in danger watching that junk is astonishing.

    unfortunately she lived so she’ll only be an Honorable Mention at this year’s Darwin Awards ceremony. She was edged out by the island hopping “missionary”/pincushion….

    But texting or talking on your cell phone is OK? What was that that Forrest Gump said? Oh right, “Stupid is as stupid does.”

    Her name should be published. Publicly shamed.

    This s exactly how people get killed. Innocent people. Take away the license. Have her ride a bus or an autonomous car while she watches her Netflix. I had a friend get killed from a 16 year old texting which hit my friend from behind at 50mph knocking him and his wife into oncoming traffic on the highway. This was on coming traffic from the other side of the road. He was simply stopped at a red light at an intersection. a really nice man. His wife is a widow. She sustained bad injuries but lived. The 16 year old did not have two nickels to rub together, living with her parents, and was not badly hurt.

  15. This driver is irresponsible! She needed to wait until she got home before watching Netflix! She deserves to be MOONED for it and it should be legal to MOON her!
