Who says newspapers are dead?

A 54-year-old motorist is facing a charge after he allegedly tried to solve a newspaper puzzle while cruising along Highway 401.
The incident happened around 9: 45 a.m. Wednesday in the westbound lanes of the 401 near Communication Road in Chatham-Kent.
OPP said an officer noticed a man looking distracted behind the wheel of a red Ford F-150 pickup truck.
The driver had a newspaper on the steering wheel.
According to the officer, the motorist was so absorbed in his puzzle that it took more than a minute for him to realize a police vehicle had come alongside him.
The pickup truck pulled over and the officer investigated.
Daniel Irons of St. Thomas, Ont., has been charged with one count of careless driving.
