    Amother texting, distracted driver or two

    Be wary of these two if your either in North Carolina on Hwy 64 or in Wyoming near
    Jackson/Jackson Hole.

    It'd be cheaper to just hire chauffeurs. Both are overdue for Darwin awards.

    Unfortunately chances are they will kill someone before receiving the award, or kill someone while in the process of receiving it.
    I see hills.... Bring them on!!!
    Stay calm and bring a towel.

    In any case, the two words, "gross negligance" come into play here. If they do injure or even worse, take someone's life, that could be grounds for a manslaughter charge.

    That is completely and amazingly scary.

    One accident I can believe.
    Twice convinces you it wasn't an 'accident'.
    Three times? WTF?????????

    These people need a slap in the face and then their precious mobile phones stomped on.

    I was going to ask what her insurance rates must be after 3 at-fault accidents, but then saw that daddy is an insurance executive.

    I see the comments have been disabled on this story...no small wonder. Some people really shouldn't breed.

    ...and what two wheeled transportation is going to be near a rumble strip?

    When I read that bit I felt a bit queazy - he's already run you down before he gets to that rumble strip.
