A Texas lawyer seemingly did not have a good start to her day yesterday.
A dark Lexus registered to the unidentified woman made a U-turn during rush hour into a patch of wet concrete that road workers had just put down in Houston. News of the incident, which stranded the female driver until the $70,000 vehicle could be pulled out by a flat bed tow truck, made international headlines in the Daily Mail and other publications.
"The orange cones are there for a reason, people," notes the Houston Press on its Hair Balls page.
