Texting While Driving – Aftermath in Pictures

Knowing my passion for educating teens & young adults about the dangers and potential consequences of distracted driving, a friend sent me these images some time ago. The first six have a pretty strong impact; however, the last three show what can happen with just a moment’s distraction. We sometimes use the first six in our presentations; but, we merely describe the tragic outcome of this young man’s choice. I don’t think anyone should have to see the last three pictures to understand what can happen when driving distracted, but I would definitely prefer it was seen in a picture as opposed to watching a friend suffer the same fate. Friends don’t let friends drive distracted…PERIOD.

The decision to post this on the DIAD blog has not been made lightly. Our goal is not to try and change behaviour through fear; however, this is about as clear as it can get when it comes to visually portraying consequences of distracted driving.

As the story goes, and I’ve not found anything online to disprove it, this young man was texting his girlfriend while driving when he crossed the centre line. In the end, it’s somewhat irrelevant whether or not it can be proven he was texting while driving; either way, he ended up fully on the wrong side of a straight road on a clear day…some level of driver distraction was involved.

The driver of the truck was uninjured and as such, probably got out to see if he could help. Although an innocent participant in the tragic ending of this young man’s life, the trucker is undoubtedly dealing with PTSD / CIS following the scene he encountered. Consequences of distracted driving go well beyond the driver choosing to drive distracted, there are far reaching effects of an individual’s choice.

Number 1 – The last few feet of a car after it collided head on with a truck.

Number 2 – Blackening around the engine area of the truck indicate fire.

Number 3 – Note the clear day and long straight stretch of road – the only thing wrong is the car’s in the wrong lane.

Number 4 – This is not a rescue, it’s a recovery.

Number 5 – This was a four seat model; what’s left of the driver is now in the back seat/trunk area.

***AS PREVIOUSLY NOTED, THE FOLLOWING THREE PICTURES DEPICT THE VERY TRAGIC AND LIFE ENDING CONSEQUENCES OF A MOMENT’S DISTRACTION. VIEWERS ARE RECOMMENDED AGAINST CLICKING ON THE PICTURES, BUT IF YOU NEED TO SEE IT TO GET THE MESSAGE, WE’D RATHER YOU SAW IT HERE IN PICTURES THAN MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE. PLEASE DRIVE SAFE. DON’T DRIVE DISTRACTED. EVEN A MOMENT OF YOUR ATTENTION AWAY FROM THE ROAD CAN HAVE CATASTROPHIC CONSEQUENCES. ****
