    Texting or some other Driving while Distracted behavior, if not also speeding like a bat out of hell. When I saw the headline I was sure this must have happened in the middle of the night, not at 1:30 in the afternoon on a beautiful clear day. Wow. I know that stretch of road very well; he almost had to TRY to do this.
