Driving while “inTEXTicated” | My Thoughts, Ideas, and Ramblings

An 18-year-old girl plowed directly into the rear of another vehicle. She was going 70 mph. She apparently never even saw them. You see, she had been texting at the time. You can see that she hit them dead-center with no attempt to slow or evade the collision.

"it just happened and it has not been proven in a court of law that the girl was driving while texting"

horrible accident.. I'm certainly glad the child is doing well..

IMO, there are many many many things that take one's attention from the road while driving.. texting being just one of them.
