(KSL News) A cigarette posed a different health hazard for a driver.

The woman was driving in a Salt Lake neighborhood when ash from the cigarette she was smoking fell on her lap. She panicked, swerved and hit a couple of trees.

The car landed on its side in somebody's front yard. Police had to take the driver and a passenger out the windshield. Neither was seriously hurt.

No word yet if the driver will get a ticket.
