A couple days ago I heard about a woman who was involved in a car wreck in Lebanon. I then was able to read about it on st.louis.cbslocal.com. She was allegedly texting while driving, which caused her to swerve over in to the oncoming lane and hit a pickup truck. Her four-year old son was in the back seat, who was killed. The woman was hospitalized with serious burns and other injuries. The driver and passengers of the truck were injured as well, but nothing too serious. I cannot imagine the amount of guilt she is carrying.
It’s scary to hear about something like this, especially so close to whereyou live. I will admit that I text and drive constantly. I don’t even think about it sometimes. However, I have caught myself swerving a little bit from time to time. This story really made me realize that something like this could easily happen, and that I should be more cautious when driving, limiting my texting while driving.
