A tragic story was reported recently in North Carolina. A woman lost control of her car and struck a truck head-on killing her. The accident occurred almost immediately after she posted, "The happy song makes me HAPPY!" to her Facebook page. This incident was just one in an average of nearly 10 people who are killed every day due to distracted driving. The driver of the truck, fortunately, received only minor injuries, but that adds him to the over 1,100 people per day that are injured due to distracted driving.
