The very real human consequences from driving while ‘InTEXTicated’.
An 18-year-old girl plowed directly into the rear of another vehicle. She was going 110km\h. 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.
There was no blowout, no wet road, no curve or hill or fog to limit visibility. This girl clearly should have been able to see the traffic conditions at least a half mile ahead had she been looking and not texting. She nearly killed a beautiful 3-year-old child?
Griffen the day after 4 hours of surgery to repair multiple skull fractures. He would surely have died or been severely disabled had they not been minutes away

Feeling better. Mmmmm – mac-n-cheese. 🙂
Day 5 – feeling much better. My granddad bought me my very own iPod and loaded it with movies. Life is good.
This morning. All my tubes are finally out. I’m going home today!
Note how much the swelling has improved in just three days.
It’s almost unbelievable that it’s been only five days since the accident that nearly claimed his life.
All the medical experts involved expect him to make a full recovery.
Pretty soon he’ll be all healed up and back to normal – thank the Lord!
In only six weeks he’ll be allowed to be just as active as any other 3-year-old.
Phone company records of text messages are irrefutable and accurate to the second; so it would be an easy matter to prove in court that a person was texting at the time of an accident.
We encourage you to share this blog post with all your friends. We must try to stop ‘Driving While InTEXTicated’ before more innocent people are maimed or killed.
