THIS Couple Went For A Morning Walk They Had No Idea THIS One Text Would Change Everything!

On a beautiful sunny morning in March, Leslee and David Henson of St. George, Utah, decided to take a walk together.  Parents of three children and twelve grandchildren, they had moved to this lovely neighborhood to enjoy as much time with their expanding family as they could.

They had no way of knowing that their walk would change their lives forever, as a driver’s distraction would result in tragedy.  In the video below you will hear Leslee share what happened, in the hopes that her story will finally be the wake-up call about the destruction caused by texting while driving.

Carla Brennan, 52, was late for work that morning.  She didn’t wake up with the intention of hurting someone…just in a rush, she was speeding and texting.  She rear-ended another vehicle which hit the Hensons; David, 57, died on the way to the hospital, and Leslee suffered multiple fractures to her neck and lower back, as well as other injuries requiring 5,000 stitches.

Shockingly, Brennan only received a 240 day jail sentence with a plea deal.  Her car was unregistered and uninsured, and she was driving 20 miles over the speed limit when she crashed. ABC 4 UTAH reported the Henson’s daughter, Haley’s, anguished recall; because a woman had to text that she was late to work, she lost her father and her children their grandpa.

In order to raise awareness, and to help ease the overwhelming pain over the tragedy that befell her family, Haley founded “Stop the Texts, Stop the Wrecks.”  Thanks to the unrelenting efforts of the Henson family, the state laws of Utah were changed in 2014, strictly prohibiting texting while driving.

Despite the fact that so many states have these strict laws, texting while driving still persists.  Watching Leslee’s story in the footage below, provides more information that brings home the consequences of distracted driving.

The Henson’s are one out of thousands and thousands of families whose lives are ruined, because people still believe nothing will happen if they look away from the road for a moment.

Help spread their story and stop tragedies like this happening in the future.

She Died Because She Posted THIS On Facebook While Driving. Her Final Post Tore My Heart Up!

We have all watched public service messages concerning the tragic results of texting and driving, or for that matter any form of distracted driving. Despite the warnings which equate this with the dangers of drunk driving, people still look away to communicate things with their friends and family, that can certainly wait until they are off the road.

The statistics bear out that the danger of texting while driving is actually not equal to drinking and driving; it is actually 6 times more dangerous than drinking and driving! It is an absolutely terrifying problem; despite the fact that using hand-held devices while driving is illegal in almost every state in the US, nearly 660,000 Americans attempt to use their phone while driving, at any given moment each day.

That is why reporting on Courtney Sanford’s tragic death, and others like it, continues to be so important. She was a beautiful 32-year-old young woman driving along in a great mood.

She felt the need to post on Facebook while driving to share the fact that listening to the song “Happy” on the radio, “made [her] feel so happy”. Ironically, this moment of happiness was the last communication of her life.

Looking away from the road for the 5 seconds it took to post on Facebook, driving 55 mph, Courtney went over the median and hit a recycling truck head-on.

The video you are about to watch below imparts the rest of this tragic story.

The video you are about to watch could very well change your life and the lives of those you love.  We have all become addicted to our phones.  Though we have been warned repeatedly about the dangers of texting and driving, people continue to do it, causing serious accidents that result in their own and other peoples’ deaths.

Although laws have been passed making texting and driving illegal in most places, people still think that they can look away from the road for a second to read or send a text.  Although this is more common among teenagers, it occurs amongst all age groups.  Although most people would never think of driving drunk, they will text, which statistically is just as dangerous!

The following footage is a mini-documentary sponsored by AT&T, in which friends and family talk about the tragic losses they have experienced, as a consequence of people texting and driving.  They share the last text that the person who died sent before crashing, and in all cases they were unimportant.

This is a must-see video to remind all of us, that no quick message is worth losing our lives over.  Listening to the grim reality of this terribly dangerous behavior, serves as such a necessary warning for all of us.  That one second of looking away can change lives forever.

Watch the video below and remember never ever text and drive!

Racer Girl Champion Pranks Her Driving Instructors With Drifting Skills! Their Reactions Are Hilariously Terrified!

The first day at a new job is often both intimidating and exciting. New hires go in with an idea of what to expect but sometimes end up finding out that the job calls for much more than they bargained for. This was the case when a driving school decided to prank their new employees the first day on the job.

They thought it would be a funny lighthearted way to show the rookies that working there is not about being so serious all the time and to relax, lighten up, and enjoy the ride. Which is hard to do when thrown into this crazy unexpected situation.  The prank starts off with the instructors getting into a souped up car to give a young innocent looking girl what they think is a driving lesson.

She tells them it is her brother’s car and begins to drive quite horribly. She messes up shifting, takes wrong turns and appears to not know what she is doing. The instructors reactions range from understanding and helpful to mildly annoyed at this. When they try to end the lesson she asks for one more chance to get it right.

That is when her slow and atrocious driving turns into a high octane, masterful performance. The girl cranks through gears and sends the car into spins, drifting around a parking lot and coming dangerously close to nearby objects and people. She is an expert and in complete control of the car, but the instructors think she is just a crazy bad driver who may end up killing them.

Their reactions are a combination of hysterical and complete surprise to screaming the whole while. The joke truly worked when you see the looks on their faces! When the car is finally parked in a dramatic sideways sweeping arc the new employees show signs of complete relief and one even jumps out and takes off away from the car.

In the end it is revealed that this was all a trick and the girl was actually a professional racing champion and well known drifter from Malaysia named Leona Chin. She has won multiple championship titles in different divisions all across the world and makes a really convincing actress as well.

Hopefully no one quit after this stunt and they took it all in stride. All in all it was a great way to welcome new people to their team! Enjoy this video is so funny! 🙂

The Bus Driver Passed Out While He Was Driving So The Kids Reacted Fast By Doing THIS!

One substitute bus driver was very lucky when he got assigned to drive a school bus route in Milton, Washington.  The man was at the wheel ferrying the children to their stops when he lost consciousness.  When he passed out the bus was still moving forward in gear and in danger of crashing into a church.  A video camera mounted above the driver seat captured the moment and the kids quick response to the scary situation.

One boy, Jeremy Wuitschick, immediately jumped into action when he noticed the bus was careening out of control.  He can be seen grabbing the wheel and turning it safely back onto the road.  Then he took the key out of the ignition and stopped the bus.  Meanwhile, another child began CPR on the distressed driver who was having trouble breathing.  He started doing chest compressions and saw that the bus driver’s eyes were rolling back in his head.  At the same time, other children on the bus had called 911, help was on the way.

Thanks to all the children on the bus who took control of the situation no one was hurt and the driver received medical attention.  Even though they were only middle-school aged kids, they all showed incredible bravery and acted rational in the face of a very dangerous situation.  By paying close attention and not hesitating to act, Jeremy truly did save the day.  He was not even old enough to drive at that point but he proved he was mature enough to handle the situation and stop the bus.
