    Default GMC Sierra 1, mitsubishi eclipse 0

    here's what happens when a punk is too busy with his cell phone and takes on American power !!



    VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - A young male driver was text-messaging just before a head-on crash Tuesday that left him with traumatic injuries, a Clark County, Wash., Fire District 6 spokeswoman said.

    Spokeswoman Dawn Johnson said the unidentified driver was northbound in a Mitsubishi Eclipse on a local street when he swerved into southbound lanes and collided with a GMC Sierra truck.

    ********* i love how the brush guard is just as tall as the car !!

    thats wat he gets. I hate when people text and drive, or do anything and CAN'T pay attention to the road. Some people can't even drive while they are driving...

    I hope that the truck is fine and the kid learns his lesson. When will people learn that texting and driving don't mix? Hell, I almost wrecked out by my self last night on the way home because I dropped a cd. Texting is way harder and way more distracting than picking up a cd. Idiots (me included)

    Sad to say that people can't police themselves so there will have to be more laws on the books for this type of behavior. Sorry folks, you can't drive and take your eyes off the road for 15 seconds.
