Here’s one from the “life is stranger than fiction” department. This is the full story reported by Mashable.com:
In yet another example of why you shouldn’t text and drive, a Texas college student drove off a cliff while texting.
Fortunately, he survived, but incurred some serious injuries. After six months of recovering, he’s finally able to talk about it.
Right before Chance Bothe’s truck went over a cliff, he texted, “I need to quit texting, because I could die in a car accident.”
Bothe suffered a broken neck, a crushed face, a fractured skull and traumatic brain injuries, a local news station reported. He was brought back to life three times by doctors.
