Some people are said to have looks so good they could stop traffic.

At least one woman took the adage a step further. She didn't just stop traffic, she crashed it.

At about 6 p.m. Sunday a man collided with a CTA bus near West Fullerton Avenue and North Pulaski Road. He told police his brakes failed, but the  man may have had his eyes on a woman instead of on the road when he crashed into the bus, reports WBBM News Radio.

An alert onlooker told officers that the 20-something driver wanted to "look at a girl" rather than at the road.

The driver was cited for driving on a suspended license, and police discovered a warrant for his arrest, reports WBBM News Radio.

Yet another reason to take public transportation. You can ogle safely.

Well, up until you get slapped.
