Unfortunately I don't. He was checking his phone and the truck in front of him made an abrupt stop on the highway.

Yeah, like guns kill people? How about taking personal responsibility for your actions? Blaming outside sources for what we choose to do is the real problem.

Hit the nail on the head on both points. Next thing we know, forks, knives and spoons will be blamed for the obesity problem in this country.

Yeah man no sympathy here, sorry. He got away cheap- hopefully he learned his lesson not to be a bonehead and drive distracted, for the next time he might not be so fortunate.

Drunk driving and distracted driving are same thing in my book, and offenders should be punished in exactly the same way.

Drinking alcohol and using a cell phone in are no way related... sorry... distracted driving? So if I look down at my radio for a second and crash I should be punished like a dumbass who is drinking and driving? Fuck no.

You know what, you're absolutely right! They are not the same, it is actually worse.

You, sir, are a self entitled f*ckwit based on your eloquent statement I've highlighted for you.

Terrible news all around but all that matters is that he's doing okay. Hope the other driver made out all right too.

It's a forum you fucking loser not English class. Get a grip. I'm entitled to my opinion and still think you're foolish if you remotely even consider the two the same.

Hopefully he learned to just keep the phone in his pocket from now on. pair it via bluetooth and only answer calls that need attention. texts can wait..

u must be some special kind of retarded if you think drunk driving is the same as distracted driving... hell even listening to the radio is distracting. billboards are distractions, phones, idrives, anything can be a distraction. no one is always focused on the road for every damn second. there is no way in ur right mind u can say its the same as drinking and driving. if the driver of that car was drunk he probably would have crashed way before that accident happened. faith in humanity lost again..

Looks like he got what he deserved. One less idiot on the road for now. He should "of" learned to not use his cell phone while driving.

To the people arguing that it's not the same you may really want to read the link he attached to his post. Those stats may make you change your opinion
