    Charges should be filed. A 20 year old girl, should be noted that driving was distracting her cell phone use. Should be felony wreckless driving points added to her license, insurance rates triple for 6 years and she must attend several classes with at least probation for a year with restrictions the first 6 months at least.. Same as a DUI
