BOSTON " An untimely sneeze nearly cost Andrew Hanson his life.

The 42-year-old Weymouth man told authorities that a sneeze caused him to lose control of his pickup on Soldiers Field Road and plunge into Boston's Charles River on Tuesday.

Hanson was able to wade to shore after escaping from the truck, which was partially submerged in 4 feet of water.

He was not seriously injured but was taken to a hospital as a precaution.

Lawrence Callahan of the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation said Hanson told him that after he sneezed, "the next thing he knew he was in the river."

An old room-mate of mine used to blame all of her speeding tickets on sneezes.
"I was in the curve, had to sneeze, my foot JUST hit the accelerator".

RIP, Miss V.
