She Talks Faster Than She Walks
2009 Darwin Award Nominee
Confirmed True by Darwin

(30 May 2009, Louisiana) Back seat drivers beware! Annoyed at how slowly her boyfriend was driving, Tamera B, 22, encouraged him to pick up the pace so she could get to work on time. Joking that it would be faster to walk to work, she opened the door of the pickup truck and stuck her foot out before falling to her death.

But wait! Was her complaint valid? Nope. Deputies of the jurisdictional Sheriff's Office stated that the truck was traveling at highway speed on I-12 at the time of the incident. Her death was ruled accidental.

MEDIA REFERENCESS: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
