Nate Burleson is warning people who try to multitask while driving: just don’t do it.

The Lions receiver revealed the gruesome aftermath of his crushed vehicle on his Instagram account. Walking away from that mangled wreck with only a broken arm is miraculous.

He is lucky to be alive after crashing his Yukon Hybrid following a get-together to watch Monday Night Football last week at Happy’s Pizza & Pub in suburban Detroit.

After leaving the pizza joint, Burleson admitted that he was in the process of “plugging in phone to turn on music” while driving when the leftover pies started to slide off the passenger seat.

“I”m releasing these pix for 2 reasons: 1) I walked away from a totalled vehicle #Blessed 2) I have to hear all the pizza jokes…lol I’ll start-Yes I am the 5th Ninja Turtle. #LovePizza #LetTheJokesBegin”

At least he has a sense of humour.
