Authorities say Preuss had been driving drunk and was speeding. But another factor may have contributed to the crash.
Phone records show Preuss was texting just before the accident. Her cell phone, which was flipped open, was found resting on the floorboard by her feet.
Preuss' mother Kelly said she hopes the accident will make other people think before texting and driving.
Does this tick anyone off except me? The mom wants other teens to think before texting and driving? Hello? Do you see what else was going on?
She was 16 – that means she had her license for less than one year.
She was drunk – just a few more clicks reveal another news article that states her BAC was 0.18.
She was speeding - I couldn't find out how fast, or if she had been ticketed before.
The accident occurred at 2:40 AM – anyone ever hear of a curfew for young teens?
She was driving a sports car worth in excess of $40,000.00.
Her mother, bless her heart, states that she had warned her before about the dangers of texting and driving.
Texting while driving is not a good thing. It is a bad thing, however, bad parenting caused this tragedy.
