World's Wurst Driver

11:30 AM -- Ananova reports from Germany:

    A German lorry driver set fire to his cab after deciding to cook himself some sausages while driving.

    Walter Reckling, 46, kept the small gas cooker for roadside use but decided to use it on the road as he was late with a delivery.

    He was cooking two sausages while travelling past Niederwuerschnitz in Saxony, Germany, when the cooker toppled over.

    It set fire to the seat which in turn set fire to the cab of the vehicle.

    Reckling was treated for smoke inhalation at a local hospital where he was also found to have been...
(Wait for the surprise twist ending!)
    ...three times over the legal alcohol limit.
W.Reckling's cholesterol level was also extremely high.
