Nick Saban and his presidential motorcade rolled into Tuscaloosa late yesterday afternoon may have startled gawking locals distracted by the big, fancy automobile rolling through town, as the Tuscaloosa News reports that "Saban's Motorcade Distracts Drivers":
[A] five-vehicle wreck on the Hugh Thomas Bridge that occurred at the same time University of Alabama's new head football coach Nick Saban was escorted over the bridge travelling in the opposite direction by police Wednesday afternoon. The victim, a woman who sustained minor injuries, was taken to DCH Regional Medical Center, said Capt. Joe Pierson of the Tuscaloosa Police Department...
Pierson said none of the people involved in the wreck, including a police investigator who's unmarked car was damaged in the wreck, said they think the wreck occurred because people were staring at Saban's escort.
