    Stupid females and cell phones.. Should be a law against females to own both a car and cell phones between ages 16 to 30. They can’t have both obviously .

      Seriously this Beautiful girl is someones niece,daughter,sister and now they will never speak to her again, she will never be able to tell her loved ones she loves them. You should be careful how you comment someday it could be someone you LOVE! God Be with her Family and give them PEACE!

        Shelly I agree with you 100% but if she were drunk driving the comments would have been much worse. Distracted driving is now the leading cause of automotive fatalities… And beyond stupid. I can’t see a women drive without seeing a phone in her hand these days, your not that important.. Put your phones down . You kill someone I know and live while being distracted by your phone you had better hope the law catches you first

      How dare you throw your sexist agenda in at a time like this. In this day and age, have some respect for your fellow human beings.

        No, it’s retards like this who think the world is about them and gets others killed. How dare you turn this into a sexist rant, so women have the right to text /drive and kill others ? Shut up stupid.

          Calling out a single demographic is not how you get your point across. Name calling and sexism are not what good arguments make. Now what can we do to stop everyone from thinking their invincible and texting while driving? Inform people, especially younger people. Constructive, respectful, and informational is how to get things done. Now go out into the world with an open mind free of sexism and bigotry! :)
