Talk about smoking killsMan Leaps From Car to Retrieve Cigarette
FOREMAN, Ark. - A leap of faith proved hazardous for a smoker in need of a cigarette fix after a night on the town.Jeff Foran suffered trauma to his nose, eyes and chin after jumping from a car traveling 55-60 mph. Authorities said he was trying to retrieve a cigarette blown out of the passenger-side window.
Foran, 38, took the leap Saturday night, state police Trooper Jamie Gravier said.
The driver of the car, Jerry Glenn Nelson, said Foran had asked him earlier in the evening to be a designated driver after a night of drinking.
"Foran did the right thing and asked his buddy to drive him home," Gravier said. "It was obvious he was extremely intoxicated."
Gravier added: "If anything could make him stop smoking, this should be it. The man is lucky to be alive."
