SALT LAKE CITY - A Salt Lake City woman who was in the Guinness Book of World Records for her long fingernails has had them broken off in a traffic accident.
Lee Redmond sustained serious but non-life threatening injuries in the Tuesday accident.
Redmond was the current Guinness record holder, with nails that hadn't been cut since 1979. Her nails measured a total of more than 28 feet long in 2008, with the longest nail on her right thumb at 2 feet, 11 inches, according to the Guinness Web site.
Salt Lake County Sheriff's Lt. Don Hutson says she was ejected from an SUV in the crash and taken to the hospital in serious condition, the Deseret News reported Thursday on its Web site.
Redmond has been featured on TV in episodes of "Guinness Book of World Records" and "Ripley's Believe It or Not."
Okay, are you thinking this, too? - HOW THE HELL WOULD YOU DRIVE A CAR WITH THOSE NAILS IN THE FIRST PLACE? NO WONDER SHE CRASHED!!!
(yeah, I know, she was probably a passenger, right? Well, they left that part out.)
