This is taking distracted driving way too far. What was he thinking?

Without a subscription one can see the TV stations’ websites. KOB, KOAT , and KRQE .coms.
But there’s not yet much more to report . . investigation is too new.
Was he driving his injured self to the hospital ?
Was he shot while driving ?
puzzle.

Read it with no problem, shot in the face with buckshot, drive to the hospital or call 911, I could see me driving to the hospital instead of waiting for more rounds.

I could read it also, no problem. For those who can’t, I’ll reproduce it here:

gunshot wound

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Albuquerque police said a man with an apparent gunshot wound to the face also crashed his car and was taken to a local hospital.

Albuquerque police officer Daren DeAguero said in a news release that officers responded to a car crash on Lomas and Valencia, where a driver had struck a pole.

Officers said the driver, a man who police didn’t identified, appeared to also have been shot in the face. He was in critical condition at the hospital at around 5:15 p.m., DeAguero said.

No suspects are in custody and the investigation is in early stages, he said.

Thanks, Bill.
One more in a million incidences of man’s inhumanity to man. :slight_frown:

Sorry! I didn’t know they blocked access. They used to, but stopped, as near as I can tell. I’ve never paid or been blocked.

I have cited medical and scientific journals that have subscription-only access before, but quoted the relevant information and gave the citation for those who doubted.

I cited this for the first sentence and headline rather than the substance. At first blush it reads as though this careless car-wrecker (the first report didn’t mention the wound, just the lone driver crashing his car, which reads like another drunk driver) also shot himself - which, I guess, is still possible. A New Mexican set himself on fire while driving a few years ago.

The story pulled up fine for me.

Hopefully the PD will catch whoever did this and punish them to the full extent of the law; which quite often isn’t severe enough…
