People come up with all sorts of activities to keep themselves occupied while stuck in rush hour traffic.
Some sing along to the radio. Others apply makeup or shave.
And at least one person passes the time by playing with his friend's gun.
That's what an unidentified Los Angeles man was doing when he accidentally shot himself while riding in a car on the 60 Freeway.
Brea Police Sergeant Chris Haddad says that rather than call for help, the driver drove from Los Angeles County to north Orange County in search of a hospital.
After their journey proved to be unsuccessful, the pair finally gave up and called 911.
The unidentified victim, in his 20s, was treated for a non-life threatening injury to his ankle.
