A college student in America crashed into a police car while taking topless selfies for her boyfriend, officials say.

According to police, the driver, Miranda Rader, 19, crashed into the back of the police car while taking photos of herself on smartphone app Snapchat with her top.

No-one was hurt in the crash, which took place in Bryan, Texas, 100 miles north of Houston, despite the airbags deploying.

When the officer in the car approached the vehicle, he noticed she had an 'unclasped brassiere' and was trying to do up her blouse.

The student, who attends Texas A&M University, also had an open bottle of wine in a cup holder beside her.

Rader, who is in her first year at the university, told the officer she was on her way back to her student accommodation on the campus.

In an affidavit, the arresting officer wrote: "I asked her why she was not dressed while driving and she stated she was taking a Snapchat photo to send to her boyfriend while she was at a red light."

She was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated and released from jail on a $2,000 (£1,600) bail bond.

This is not the first time someone has hit a police car while using a mobile phone app behind the wheel. Back in July, an SUV driver playing Pokemon Go hit a parked cruiser in Baltimore while trying to 'catch 'em all'.
