A Good Argument

If ever there were a good argument against texting and driving, I believe I have it.

Take a look at this picture.

That, my friends, is a Cherolet Blazer.

No, really. It is. I wouldn't lie about something like this. Of course, it is a special Chevy Blazer. This one shows what they look like after running into the back of a semi truck parked on the side of the road waiting for a mechanic.

The driver of this SUV did not die, thank goodness, but he was thrown from the vehicle and has severe disfiguring facial lacerations and such that will require several surgeries to fix. Actually, I think fix isn't the right word here, because he will never be fixed completely.

The driver, a 17 year old boy, was texting while driving. He took his eyes off the road for a split second to text something on his phone and ran into the back of a semi truck. He was flown Flight For Life immediately. He was lucky.

Most will not be so lucky when they find themselves in a similar situation because of texting while driving.

Please. Don't text and drive.
