A Major Mishap From A "Minor" Mistake One day, Peter decided to take a quicktrip to the grocery store to get some food for dinner later that day. Thankfully, Peter kept his phone away from him and silent, so that it didn't distract him, like they do to 1.6 million drivers and cause car crashes annually.
As Peter drove on, he took note of a truck in front of him, and began to notice the aftermath of an accident that had happened on the road earlier. What he forgot to notice, was that he wasn't wearing his seatbelt.
Peter became enthralled with the accident, and didn't realize as he slowly sped up more and more towards the truck. In fact, 80% of car crashes are caused by a driver being distracted or not paying attention.
Peter looked back from the crash, but it was too late. He was mere feet away from hitting the truck, and had no time to stop.
Peter hit the truck. Thankfully, the truck driver was wearing his seat belt, and so he only suffered from minor injuries.
But, since Peter wasn't wearing his seatbelt, his head struck the dashboard, and he died instantly. According to DMV, nine people are killed each day due to distracted driving. In fact, distracted driving is the number one cause of death for teens in the US. All Statistics are from https://www.teensafe.com/distracted-driving /100-distracted-driving-facts-and-statistics-2018/
