Death of mother and child prove dangers of distracted driving

It's not just happening in Alabama; it is happening all around the country and putting lives at risk every day. Simply put: conversations can wait until after people are done driving. Don't text and drive. In fact, it is best not to even talk on a cell phone while driving. Distracted driving cost a mother her life and the life of her 10-month-old baby boy in car accident.

The Alabama mother was driving on Thursday night, reportedly carrying on a texting conversation while driving. She reportedly veered her car into the wrong lane and hit a dump truck. She didn't survive the crash, and despite responders' attempts to get the baby medical help, professionals could do nothing to save him.
