coldcuts: 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//


You can turn off autocorrect.

doglover: coldcuts: auto-correct

Who uses auto correct?


This guy did. He was in oncoming traffic, and he auto corrected into a tree.

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.

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.


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

I'm sure it was a super-important text. I mean, it'd have to be, to do it while driving at a high rate of speed on the highway.

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. Pay attention to what you're doing, you freak-asset chimpanzee.


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.

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.

CarrieWhite: Wouldn't the phone screen lock after a little while - making the message, half written or otherwise, not visible?


Yes, but when you unlock the phone, it opens back up to whatever screen was up when it locked. Text, contact list, facebook, whatever.

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.

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