An $8.8 Million settlement was awarded to the family of a woman killed in an automobile accident. The woman and her husband were struck by a teen driver who was not only speeding, but texting while driving. After further investigation it was found that the teen was texting his girlfirend when the accident occured, and had sent a total of 127 texts that day.
Texting and driving is a serious problem on our roadways, and this is just one of many extremely sad cases that result from this extremely wreckless activity. Texting and driving can change lives in an instant, and is never worth the risk. If you are a parent of a teen, please express the importance of not texting while driving.
