I will admit i do text when im on the road but I do it safely, when im stopped at the red light, waiting in stand still traffic or moving very slowly i will text if needed. But going at higher speeds you need to be a lot more aware of whats going on.
The teen or whoever was driving should have their license taken away for being so careless and putting others at harm. He/she hit like what.... 3 cars? and about a few close calls.
