The reason drivers partake in such activities even though they’re highly dangerous is because they somehow believe they’ll be exempt. They believe they’ll be the exception of the masses and successfully multi-task while they drive or drive recklessly without suffering consequences. It’s unfortunate because it only takes a few seconds of negligent driving to cause critical damage and possibly end someone’s life. Because multiple injuries resulted from this accident, it’s likely that personal injury lawsuits will be filed.
