I don't believe this.  I think this was a set up, possibly by some well-meaning folks, to warn of the very real dangers of texting.

1. the message is too perfectly cut-off with the obvious 'tw-'
2. when you type //ill// on an iphone, the default is to auto-correct to //I'll//.  The texter would have had to block the auto-correct (or spent a lot of time typing /ill/ for the phone to have learned that as a default.
3. Likewise, //seeya// auto corrects to //seems//

It wasnt this exact one but maybe this will help. My friend, a firefighter, was called to one like this Saturday and he finished the story for me....

... So she was texting and drifted left. She didn't even know the Doolie hauling the horse trailer was there when her Accord hit it in the fortified front end crumpling the driver compartment into a flat surface. The force of the engine crushing her splattered her into the back seat so he had to quite literally scoop what was left out of the car after he used the jaws to cut open the crumpled remains. Thank God her 5-MONTH-OLD was in the right side of the car and in a child seat so they just hosed her off and sent her to the hospital where she was ok.

A worthy cause, but one shouldn't look at screens while driving. Human brains aren't designed to perceive things moving at highway speeds. Nothing in nature goes 70 mph. Your brain is feeble and it takes 100% of your attention and cognition to even move your car in a straight line. Pay attention to what you're doing, you freak-asset chimpanzee.

Just as I thought: texting wasn't the issue.  A damn trashcan could have fallen off the back of a truck and he would have freaked out just the same.  Or the old "I crashed into the ditch because a dog came out of nowhere".  But yes, he could have been not texting and not had this crash.

I call FAKE. He presumably got in a crash while responding to that at 5:16, but at 7:13 a family member thought to check his phone and had the presence of mind to take a photo of it?  And don't say it was the next day, because even if it was at 100% charge when he crashed, no smart phone lasts 26 hours before dying.

ransack.: Human brains aren't designed to perceive things moving at highway speeds. Nothing in nature goes 70 mph. Your brain is feeble and it takes 100% of your attention and cognition to even move your car in a straight line.


Bull honkey.

Yeah man I've been in these conversations and they were totally meeting at the mall parking lot to deliver a quarter of Alaskan Thunderfark/Headband chronic. A worthy cause, but one shouldn't look at screens while driving. Human brains aren't designed to perceive things moving at highway speeds. Nothing in nature goes 70 mph. Your brain is feeble and it takes 100% of your attention and cognition to even move your car in a straight line. Pay attention to what you're doing, you freak-asset chimpanzee.

Quite a few things in nature go 70 mph.


Predators, I mean. Things looking for you. Not pyroclastic flows or lightning. I mean animals on the veldt.

Rumors persist that something called a "cheetah" exists, but no human has ever seen one, or at least not survived to tell of it.

Actually, the human brain seems to handle the simultaneous equations which are needed for 70 MPH pretty well. That's why we can drive 400 miles on these roads which only have a few inches of clearance on each side.

This problem, however, is due to someone not keeping their brain on the road long enough to avoid keeping their brain from being on the road.

Gig103: I call FAKE. He presumably got in a crash while responding to that at 5:16, but at 7:13 a family member thought to check his phone and had the presence of mind to take a photo of it?  And don't say it was the next day, because even if it was at 100% charge when he crashed, no smart phone lasts 26 hours before dying.


The kid's phone is at 5%. My first gen iPad retains the battery just fine so long as I'm not using it. Hell, it'll last more than 48 hours if I don't touch it. And I charge my iPhone every third day because I just don't use it that much. There's no reason to think this wasn't the next night.

True. If he'd been driving a manual tranny, he'd have had no free hands with which to text.

If he was smoking a cigarette while driving a manual with no power steering, he would be the safest driver on earth.


You just described me in my 79 Celica GT 5sp.

gambitsgirl: darklingscribe: Nutsac_Jim: how do people receive all these unfinished texts?  Does the phone know it is in a car wreck and hit send?

The text was found unsent on his phone in the wreckage.

I wish articles like this gave more details on the crash itself. As it is written now it seems he drifted into an oncoming lane, realized what was happening and overcorrected.

It wasnt this exact one but maybe this will help. My friend, a firefighter, was called to one like this Saturday and he finished the story for me....

... So she was texting and drifted left. She didn't even know the Doolie hauling the horse trailer was there when her Accord hit it in the fortified front end crumpling the driver compartment into a flat surface. The force of the engine crushing her splattered her into the back seat so he had to quite literally scoop what was left out of the car after he used the jaws to cut open the crumpled remains. Thank God her 5-MONTH-OLD was in the right side of the car and in a child seat so they just hosed her off and sent her to the hospital where she was ok.


I saw a car up ahead of me swerving as I was driving down the highway, I knew the girl driving was texting. As I was finally able to pass I see a baby in the right rear seat, then I see her texting away with no worries, but I had to pass fast since she was still swerving. I spent about a minute ahead of her, keeping the same speed, and motioning with my hands over and over to stop texting. I saw some hand gestures from her, hopefully she got the point eventually.

Oh, so people who don't know how to type or spell. We call those "morons."


you've used a modern cell phone before right? You are aware that they don't have a physical keyboard and that if you don't have fingers the size of a small child there is a good chance you'll be hitting the letters beside the ones you want about a quarter of the time.

Dualie. As in, dual wheels (per axle side). Unless a WWII USAF cadet was towing the horse trailer.

I hate to sound repetitive, but if you are actually trying to pilot 2 tons of metal, plastic and glass, Lord knows how fast, while typing on something the size of a pack of Marlboros that - bonus: has a PHONE in it - your head is so far up your ass you can probably chew your own food twice and I can only hope that WHEN you turn yourself into a can of creamed corn, that you don't take anybody with you.
 
2013-04-11 04:01:39 PM  
In my 30+ years behind the wheel, IMHO texting while driving is a worse problem than drunk driving ever was.  I see it a lot more, and a lot worse, as in...people drifting into oncoming traffic.

My modern cell phone has this nifty feature where I can turn it sideways and the keyboard becomes much bigger. Sounds like you need to get an upgrade.

More likely it was the police photographing evidence shortly after the crash, making it just about 2 hours after the crash.  That purple you see is rubber gloves.  2 hours without auto-locking?  Maybe he had auto-lock off, or no password protection.

My smartphone will last almost the whole weekend as long as I have a good signal (so it's not trying hard to  find one) and I keep all data (4G and WiFi) turned off.

FTA:  The victim was jogging against traffic when the impaired driver became distracted, veered across the road and hit her from behind.

It takes extra special talent to kill a jogger on the other side of the road.  Jeez.
