EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. (AP) -- An Air Force security man crashed his patrol car into a parked $39 million jet fighter while fumbling for his cell phone, totaling the car and damaging the plane, investigators say.

The Nov. 5 accident caused more than $62,000 in damage to the F-15's landing gear, according to an Air Force report released Wednesday. The report did not say how fast the car was going.

The driver, Airman Raymone Sydnor, was patrolling the flight line at this Florida Panhandle base when he dropped his personal phone and leaned down to search for it, investigators said.

Sydnor suffered a concussion. He received an undisclosed punishment.

As a result of the accident, the Air Force said, security personnel have been ordered to get out of their cars every half-hour for a 10-minute break "to combat boredom and oxygenate blood flow."
