    A 38-year-old Winthrop, Ark. man was hospitalized after jumping out the passenger window of a vehicle traveling an estimated 55 to 60 mph to retrieve his cigarette late Saturday, an official said. Jeff Foran was riding in his friend's 2000 Dodge Stratus about 10 p.m. Saturday near the Arkansas-Oklahoma border when the cigarette he was smoking blew out the vehicle's front passenger window, said Arkansas State Police Trooper First Class Jamie Gravier.


    Foran jumped out of the vehicle to retrieve the cigarette and hit the pavement, causing facial trauma.

    He landed on the eastbound lane of Arkansas Highway 234 about three miles west of the Cross Roads community about 10 miles northwest of Foreman.

    WOW...I guess this would be an effective way to get someone to stop smoking but I don't think I'd want to try it.

    Yeah, but it provides the rest of us with some much needed humor.
