Woman, Coffee Escape Watery Car Crash
STEVE INSKEEP, host:

She may have lost control of the car, but a woman kept control of what was really important. Authorities say the driver was reaching for her cell phone when she crashed.

But witnesses say the 22-year-old woman made it out safely. And she waded ashore still holding onto her morning coffee.
