We received a service call this morning regarding a customer who was driving to fast in the storm last night and drove off the road into this ditch. He's lucky to have not been injured or kill. Please, Drive safe and take extra precautions when it's been stormy the way that it has been.
We can not stress safe driving practices enough. Please, Do not text and drive let alone use Skype or Face to Face talk type services while you are driving. This driver was swerving from lane to lane. I witnessed her swerve into the lane next to her and being tapped by the vehicle that she had cut off and forcing her into the cement wall. I pulled over to see if I can help but the police informed that there was nothing that we can do. The driver was dead at the scene and the person that she was using the face to face service with saw the accident and saw her die. Please, Use common sense while driving and pay close attention to the road and other drivers.
