Darwin Award Candidate

The judge in this suit should not only throw the case out, but nominate the plaintiff for an honorable mention in the "Darwin Awards":

On January 19, 2010, Rosenberg was apparently trying to get from 96 Daly Street, Park City, Utah, to 1710 Prospector Avenue, Park City, Utah. She looked up the walking directions using Google Maps on her Blackberry. Google Maps suggested a route that included a half-mile walk down "Deer Valley Drive," which is also known as "Utah State Route 224." There's not much more to say--she started walking down the middle of a highway, and a car hit her. Who wouldn't have seen that one coming?

In what version of reality does behaving like that involve a lawsuit?

Update: Credit where due - Danny Sullivan originally broke the story.
