A recently released report says that a British ferry crashed into a French fishing boat because the ferry crew was talking about Halle Berry instead of monitoring the radar.
 
The deadly crash occurred back in March in the foggy English Channel when the ferry Condor Vitesse smacked right into the fishing boat Les Marquises, splitting it in two and killing its captain. According to an official investigative report about the accident, leaked today by the Daily Mail, the ferry's captain and first officer were talking about Halle moments before the crash. The report quotes the captain as saying he was tired because he watched Catwoman the night before.


"Yesterday evening I watched Catwoman on the TV. I'm an idiot because after that I slept very badly," he said. "[Halle] was jumping from everywhere like a cat. She is very beautiful. She was wearing sexy outfit."

The report, conducted by by the French investigation body BEAmer, says the convo distracted the boat's crew and led to the crash: "In the wheelhouse almost continuous talking, without any link to the watch-keeping, maintained an atmosphere not compatible with the necessary concentration to conduct a high speed craft in the fog."

The investigation into the incident is ongoing, but the captain and first officer have been relieved of their duties.

We knew Halle had a killer bod, but damn.
