In a very motherly moment, a woman used her families heartache to show the world what they shouldn’t do and that’s reach for your phone while driving.
Her teen son dropped his phone behind a car pedal, continued driving, and reached down to grab it.
The problem being, he took his eyes off the road. Of course the young adult thought it was for seconds but in reality it was much longer than that.
The high school senior was hurt and rushed to ICU.
Thankfully, the driver hit was unhurt. She also happened to be a nurse and stayed with the student until the ambulance came.
Thank you for sharing this moment as a reminder to all of us.
Please stay safe while driving by keeping both eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.
We promise you won’t regret it.
A sobering picture was released one month after the incident that shows the totaled car side by side with the injured teen.
We decided not to identify the young man because we are not sure of his age nor do we have permission to release it from his parents. The mother also did not identify herself.
