    I’m glad the homeowners weren’t hurt…Teenage girl on her way to school texting and driving no doubt….

      Just because a teenager is involved you assume texting is involved. Not all Teens text and drive.Were you there. Dont assume when a teen causes a wreck that automatically involves texting. Not all teens have cell phones.

      This was my sister on her way to college this morning. She wasn’t texting and driving. It was raining and the roads were wet. She Hydroplaned so get your facts straight! Thanks (:

    @Karen. Just because she is a teenager you assume she was texting and driving. Were you there? They story says nothing about texting. I hate when we teenagers are in wrecks adults automatically assume texting was involved.

    Lets not automatically blame texting… She could have fallen asleep, been on drugs, drunk, siezureing, or some other cause. Just be glad everyone is still alive. I just read that someone up north slammed into the backend of a semi and died. Definitely a wakeup call for the young driver here.

    Judging teens how shallow are you!!! My daughter is terrified to even leave the ringer on to her cell phone. She often witnesses adults using their phones while driving and running off the road. I am sure there is never an adult that is under the influence of drugs, drinking, or a serious medical condition in which they do not need to drive. Wake up call for adults also. Raise them responsible so they will be responsible adults. Shame you for judging!!

    At you know who your right,No one was there and nobody has the right to judje and anyone because I have saw adults trying to drive and they would be texting or trying to read something on craigslist. My husband is the worlds worst about it and I have to take his phone from him because 99 percent of the time my 15 year old son is in the car. My son has his driving permit and I always make him give me his phone or turn his phone off and put it in his pocket. And I have also saw that alot of teenagers are more mature than adults when it comes to driving.

    I am the teenage driver who wrecked today. No drugs, drowsiness, being tired, or texting or on being on my cell phone was involved so miss Karen you can keep your comments to yourself especially if they are irrelevant. You don’t know what happened so you just sound ignorant. I’m guessing you’re an adult? Please act like one and don’t assume and make me sound reckless and irresponsible. If your concerned be thankful people are alive, if you aren’t then worry about yourself. My car lost complete control going around a 90 degree curve and when I hit my brakes all it did was shitte my car to the right, left, back to the right, then back to the left and into the yard. I assume since the grass and roads were wet and it was just sliding with my foot on the break it managed however to hit the bottom brick step and hit the bay window. I remember everything and was above the influence and aware of everthing. I’m at home, my back is broken in one place; L1 part. I’m very thankful god was there for both me and the elderly couple.
