Rock singer, Peter Frampton, was minding his own business yesterday while driving his car On Los Angeles' 101 Freeway when the driver behind him hit his car. Frampton claims the driver was too busy texting to notice that the highway actually had other cars on it.
Because of the accident, the singer ended up with back and neck injuries and maybe even whiplash.
According to New York's CBSFM, Frampton immediately took to his Twitter account and told his followers what happened.
"Texting woman driver just ran into back of me while I was stationary in traffic 101 freeway. Can u say whiplash? People put the phones down!"
"Back and neck not good. Going to ER after my flight today."
No one knows if the 62-year-old rocker actually did go to the hospital but his tweets sound like he might be thinking of doing a Public Service Announcement about the accident and what might happen if people text while driving.
On August 3 Frampton is due to start a six-show U.S. tour in Minnesota and his representatives have already said that the tour will not be canceled. As Peter tweeted, "I'm, 'Grinning and Bearing' the tour already and it hasn't even started yet! Ouch!! Ha ha ha ha .... pic.twitter.com/qSPe8d9e ."
You would think that by this time people would know the dangers of texting and driving, but many think that laws are meant for others and not them. The driver who caused the accident is very lucky that Peter Frampton didn't sustain any real injury. She might not be so lucky next time.
Don't text if you're driving! No phone call is so important that it can't wait until you're able to pull over.
