Thursday night my wife was driving home from work. After being stopped a few cars back at a red light, she happened to look in the rear view mirror and saw headlights coming up quickly. The next thing she remembers is a jarring impact. Someone had run into the back of her car.
She gets out of the car to check The damage and The young girl who hit her gets out of her car and says, "I'm so sorry. I was on my phone. I didn't see you"
I met them at the accident site and asked my wife if she was ok. She said she was ok, but really sore and stiff. She thought she just needed to rest and she'd be ok. So, we went home.
Well, the next morning, she didn't feel any better, so, we went and got her checked out.
The xrays showed the results.
A fracture of the C5 vertebrae.
So, now she's in a collar until we get her CT scan today and learn the extent of the damage and what had to be done to repair it.
All this because someone thought that something on their phone was more important than paying attention to the road.
My wife was lucky that it wasn't worse.
Please, stay off your phone while driving. It's not worth someone else's life or your own. Nothing on your phone is that important any it can't wait.
