TACOMA, Wash. — A woman caused an accident on State Route 512 on Monday when she lost control of her vehicle as she was giving another driver “the bird,” the Washington State Patrol said.

The woman, driving a 2004 Taurus, was traveling eastbound next to a Subaru Outback, the State Patrol said. She wanted to get over to the right lane, but it was occupied, so she flipped off the driver of the Outback. As she was doing so she lost control of her vehicle and hit the back end of the Outback, causing it to run off the road and roll over. She ended up in a ditch farther down the roadway.
