The Question Is, Who's He Going to Sue?

Who says smoking isn't bad for you?

Jonathan Fish of San Francisco probably believes it now. Fish was crossing the Bay Bridge when he tossed a lit cigarette out the window. Apparently, Mother Nature didn't want it either, and the wind blue the butt back in, where it landed in the back seat, igniting it. ($30,000 for an SUV and no ashtray?)

When his SUV starting filling with smoke, he at least had presence of mind enough to get out. Unfortunately, he left the vehicle in neutral, which allowed it to keep going and crash into a guardrail, where it burned down to the frame. (What's that about "crash and burn"?)

In addition to losing a $30,000 vehicle, Fish now faces a $1,000 fine for littering. No word yet on what it will cost to fix his singed hair, though.

Ah, poetic justice. The only thing that would make it any better is if the insurance company declines to pay off.
