Actually, you don't have to die. Sometimes close is close enough:

North Florida Woman Crashes Into Home After Closing Eyes To Pray While Driving

Police didn't indicate which prayer she said

A North Florida woman is saying her prayers after running her car into a home — fter saying her prayers.

The 28-year-old woman was driving in the tiny town of Mary Esther, located west of Fort Walton Beach in the Florida Panhandle. Deputies from the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office say the driver told them she was praying and had her eyes closed before the incident took place.

According to NWFDailyNews.com, authorities say she ran a stop sign, going through an intersection and into the yard of a home. The driver tried to back out, but her car got stuck in sand and dirt around the home.

Wait, wait! She didn't have to  admit she had her eyes closed. She could have told police she blacked out for a moment. I mean, why else would somebody actually close their eyes while driving down a city street? Religion is one possible answer.
