This is so sad.
Authorities say the 25-year-old driver was texting while driving yesterday, and that distraction apparently caused her to slam into a giant tree and careen off of that into a nearby lake!!
Yikes!! We know it's a rough economy, but most gas stations will discount your car wash every time you fill up your tank!!
There's no need to resort to this madness!!
Thankfully, the woman's foolish decision didn't injure her too badly! She was taken to the hospital but reportedly only suffered minor injuries.
Authorities haven't specified whether or not the tree was hurt.
We've said it once, and we'll say it again:
TEXTING WHILE DRIVING IS THE WORST!
So don't do it!! Ever!
