A few days later, I was driving my van with a dirtbike in back when a similar scenario unfolded right in front of me. Traffic slowed suddenly, and a middle-aged mom driving an SUV in the adjacent lane failed to take notice until it was too late. She wasn’t quite as fortunate as the young woman, and slammed into the back of the pickup truck in front of her at speed. Her SUV slewed to the left—again, into my lane—and she overcorrected, steering hard to the right. Predictably, the SUV rolled over onto its roof, exploding all of its windows, and then back onto its wheels, whereupon it shot across three lanes of traffic and plowed into an earthen bank. Miraculously, the driver didn’t hit any other vehicles and appeared not to be seriously injured. I wasn’t close enough to see if she had been texting, but judging by her failure to slow when everyone else did, she obviously hadn’t been paying attention. I told the police as much when I called 9-1-1.
