Mystery: Why They Sunbathe in Roads in Pa.

It's been all over the news: Two 13 year old girls were run over by a car while they sunbathed on a rural road in Beaver County, Pa. over the weekend.

Now, I of course hope the girls make a quick and full recovery, but the deep mystery in this case is: Why were they sunbathing on the road?

None of the news reports explain why they weren't on a beach, a lawn, a deck, by a pool, anything but a road, even if the road had very little traffic.

To me, that's the most important question in this story, once it was established that the girls will recover and the guy who hit them didn't do it intentionally and wasn't drunk.

There's a lot of stories on line about this incident, but nothing on why the girls were there. Readers, have you heard anything?

Meanwhile, if you want to sunbathe, which isn't a good idea in the first place given the risk of skin cancer, please try to avoid doing so on roads. Or the railroad tracks. Or an airport runway. Just to be safe.
