SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Salt Lake City woman who was in the Guinness Book of World Records for her long fingernails has had them broken off in a car accident.
Lee Redmond sustained serious but non-life threatening injuries in the Tuesday accident.

In this picture from November 2004, Lee Redmond’s nails measured 31 1/2 inches.
Redmond was the current Guinness record holder, with nails that hadn’t been cut since 1979. Her nails measured a total of more than 28 feet long in 2008, with the longest nail on her right thumb at 2 feet, 11 inches, according to the Guinness Web site.
Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Lt. Don Hutson says she was ejected from an SUV in the crash and taken to the hospital in serious condition.
Redmond has been featured on TV in episodes of “Guinness Book of World Records” and “Ripley’s Believe It or Not.”

    Gross!!! But the nails explain the bad hair. I wouldn’t be able to do my hair either if I had several feet of nails.
