Does sexy really equal newsworthy?

This one comes all the way from the Northern Territory of Australia. The headline reads "Sex act driver loses control." A short article follows explaining how a drunk couple engaging in "more than kissing" (as one CNN reporter put it from whom I heard about the story) was involved in a minor accident. And well... that's it. That's the whole story. Then, the article quotes the Police Duty Superintendent warning against inattentive driving saying next time it could be worse.
I guess there isn't much to report on in the Northern Territory, or maybe someone was trying to sell a newspaper with sex (the first word in the headline) instead of news.
