    Well let’s get it rolling… Indeed it was a tragic accident.. But where are all the “he was texting” comments?? Because there just can’t be a accident anymore without that being the cause… Right?? Where are the mothers against texting… Oh wait this cause don’t work for them because they are all busy driving around texting their little darlings every 2 seconds…
