    And that’s why we have laws against texting and driving!
    Dumb ass!

      Yeah because i’m sure you’re not guilty of ever doing it. We all are. If not you’re definitely lying.

    “I can text WHILE behind the wheel, no problem”…thinks everyone doing it…until the inevitable happens.

    Lucky for her there was no one in the crosswalk! (I realize it was 4am).

    Eyes Up!
    Phone Down!

    Smh she’s lucky she wasn’t killed or didn’t kill someone else. Maybe now she’ll learn to NOT text and drive. Pull over if it’s that important.

      Gee you really make sense……

      Guess we are all lucky when you put it that way.

      You should teach – or write a “how to” series of books.

      Maybe run for office? The dems are looking for intelligent go-getters like you.

        I love how there is always someone who brings up politics in everything around them. This has nothing to do with democrats or republicans. Get off your high horse. Maybe YOU should run for office? Dems are always recruiting dumba**es like yourself. Tell ya what, I’ll put in a good word for you.

    I hope the idiot gets cited for texting while driving. SMH.

    Thank God the occupant was okay. If I’m honest I’m guilty of doing the same thing more often than I should. It makes no since, but I’ve been lucky. This is a wake-up call for me.

      So you waited until the 374th time this has been reported on this site, this year, to have a “wake up call??”

    This is a senseless accident. When a individual gets behind the wheel they know the rules of the road. NO TEXTING AND DRIVING. Then to admit that what you were doing when the accident occured is insane behavior. It really could have been worst even loss of life. I really hope this individual pay for this act. Glad the person is alright.

    • usernametaken on August 12, 2019 at 9:27 pm

      I see no insane behaviour in admitting when one is wrong. There are other things they could have “claimed”…a deer ran out in front of me comes to mind, but it wouldn’t be the truth. Being truthful is always the best way to go. Yes, it most certainly could have been a lot worse.

      • Truth on August 13, 2019 at 8:53 am

        Agreed.

    • Chris on August 14, 2019 at 1:33 pm

      They don’t need to admit it. They will pull phone records.

    please tell me she was arrested for breaking the law texting and driving is illegal isn’t it and I bet she wiped her butt with that famous Refusal form

      You should be arrested for stupidity. Also the refusal form is only for the medics.

        “The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the crash.”

        Maryland courts have set a precedent that charges can’t be added at a later date unless something changes the circumstances, like an injured person dying.

        In this case, the Sheriff’s Office is determining what charge(s) to use. Lots of property damage (signs, etc.) to take into account.

    So sick of idiots on their Cell Phones and the LACK OF ENFORCEMENT on our Maryland Roads.

    • The REAL Truth on August 13, 2019 at 11:10 am

      Fear not Jimmy V! The Sheriff just announced their 37th initiative to ramp up policing for distracted driving and traffic enforcement. I am sure the problem will be handled expediently as it has been in the past. #sarcasm

      • Bill on August 14, 2019 at 2:16 pm

        Exactly. Which means an extra bunch of grant paid overtime runing radar at 9am on Sunday morning on Rt 235. Not spending time in traffic pulling over people using a phone while driving.

      • Jimmy V. on August 16, 2019 at 12:22 pm

        Yeah, like NEVER. Thanks, TRT. I see too many distracted driving idiots in this State (especially Rt 201), and if they kill my Family, I will sue the *S* out them, then the State!

    Refused care because she was DRUNK and didn’t even get in trouble, such a shame.

  20. Builder50 on August 14, 2019 at 5:38 am

    First question is… WHO are you texting at 4:00 in the morning? REALLY??? Actually, some of us DON’T text when we drive. NOTHING I would text is worth MY LIFE or someone elses. You do not have the right to endanger those around you – no matter HOW SPECIAL you think you are! “I do it all the time” is a poor excuse. Will you say that when you hurt/kill someone while you text and drive? Most phones now will send a message that you are driving and will return the text when you get where you are going. You don’t even know you got the text. Set your phone down, drive, and stay alive. We would appreciate it!!

    Yeay, no injuries. Frequently, when there are auto accidents, there are ambulances, trips to the hospital. Unanswered question: does the American Red Cross have a monopoly on the nations blood supply & is that anything to be concerned about? A monopoly does not have to mean 100%, it may only have to be a 80%, 70%, 60% to be a monopoly.

    Why don’t auto accidents attorneys have it on their websites that they have the gall to charge 1/3 – 1/2 for the auto accident cases that they handle. Its your accident. Why do they deserve 1/3? They not only don’t have the price (1/3) on their website, they have no explanation for why they charge it.
