Damn cell phones! This is the 3rd fatality I know of in Union County of a teen either trying to text or talk on a cell phone.

One, about 3 years ago a girl was talking on her cell while driving and dropped her phone. She bent down to either pick it up or see where it went, ran off the road and hit a tree at 60 mph.

Second one, a boy trying to text his girlfriend ran into the back of a truck at a stoplight was severely injured and later died.

And this one. State Patrol says evidence shows she was texting. They know who she was texting with.

The young girl that ran over a pedestrian is also thought but not proven to be cell phone related.

For my safety and the safety of others I do Not drive and have not for many years ( my nervous disorder prevents me from doing so )
I am sorry to hear of this tragic death...
I only walk these-days... and on several occasions have nearly been run over by someone Not paying attention and too busy with their cell phone ... I even slapped the hood of the one woman who bumped me with her car ... and all she did was give me the finger...
People please do Not TEXT while driving ... and pay more attention to your driving than you do to your phone... maybe you might prevent a tragedy upon yourself... the call can wait...

If it was me I would have dented the car and after the finger it would be ON...BIG TIME.
