Poly wants a cracker and a decaf. Parrot causes auto crash in Pennsylvania.

    Pennsylvania police say a woman lays the blames for a recent auto crash on her coffee-drinking pet parrot.  The coffee addicted parrot distracted her moments before she crashed her car into a guardrail.

Troopers from Uniontown say the woman was driving on a South Union Township road just before 5 p.m. Tuesday when she was distracted by the bird pecking at the lid of her coffee cup. The woman says this distraction led to the accident.

The woman told police that the bird likes to drink coffee with its bird seed. The bird seed was found in a cup holder next to the coffee along with  a few feathers nearby.

Police say the woman suffered a broke her arm and has facial cuts because her air bag deployed.

The bird was safely removed from the vehicle.

No word on if the coffee was decaf or not.
