Only in Salina

Don't get me wrong, I loved growing up in Salina. Things like this will always make me think...only in Salina, though. (This happened earlier this summer and my mom cut out the article in the paper to warn her hubby of the potential danger in his daily Sonic "Diet Coke with lime pieces".

From the Salina Journal...

Man blames Salina crash on 'brain freeze'

A man said he crashed his car into the front steps of a house on South Fifth Street Tuesday afternoon while he was drinking a cold drink that gave him a “brain freeze.”
Robert M. Schulz, 66, Salina, told Salina police he had just purchased the flavored, frozen drink from a Sonic restaurant and was drinking it while traveling east on East Crawford after 3:45 p.m.

Schulz said he suffered a “brain freeze,” followed by a “chest freeze,” causing him to loose control, leave the street and crash into the front steps of the home at 703 S. Fifth, said Desk Officer Brandon Tomson.

Schulz was taken by ambulance to Salina Regional Health Center, where he was treated and released.
