Top­less selfie stu­dent crashes into Texas po­lice car

A US col­lege stu­dent has crashed into a po­lice car while tak­ing a top­less selfie be­hind the wheel, say of­fi­cials.

Mi­randa Rader, 19, rear-ended the pa­trol ve­hi­cle while send­ing nude pho­tos to her boyfriend through the so­cial me­dia app Snapchat, po­lice say.

The ac­ci­dent on Wed­nes­day in Bryan, about 100 miles north of Hous­ton, caused the airbag to de­ploy.

The Texas A&M Univer­sity stu­dent also had an open bot­tle of wine in a cup holder by her, ac­cord­ing to po­lice. No one was in­jured in the in­ci­dent. The of­fi­cer whose car had been hit ap­proached Ms Rader to find she had an “un­clasped brassiere” and was try­ing to put on her blouse, po­lice said.

The fresh­man told the of­fi­cer that she had been driv­ing back to her res­i­dence on cam­pus.

The ar­rest­ing of­fi­cer wrote in an af­fi­davit: “I asked her why she was not dressed while driv­ing and she stated she was tak­ing a Snapchat photo to send to her boyfriend while she was at a red light.”

She was ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of driv­ing while in­tox­i­cated and re­leased from jail on Thurs­day morn­ing on a $2,000 bail bond, po­lice said.
