Obama Fan Almost Causes Crash

Driver tried to take picture of president-elect's motorcade

The president-elect's celebrity status in Chicago nearly caused an accident on his way to work today. 

After Barack Obama left his home this morning shortly after  9 a.m., a driver on her cell phone crossed lanes on Lake Shore Drive to take his picture.

The woman, with Alabama license plates, perhaps did not realize it is illegal to drive while on a cell phone.
