We were driving through an intersection when a petextrian walked right into the middle of the street.
Yeah, we had to swerve to avoid hitting her!

A petextrian is a person who walks while texting. The term is a combination of "pedestrian" and "text."
When a petextrian walks while texting he is usually oblivious to things going on around him. As the number of petextrians rise, with some walking into oncoming traffic, several states have passed laws to make it illegal.
