In yet another example of why you shouldn’t text and drive, an Texas-- college student drove off a cliff while texting.

Fortunately, he survived, but incurred some serious injuries. After six months of recovering, he’s finally able to talk about it.

Right before Chance Bothe’s truck-- went over a cliff, he texted, “I need to quit texting, because I could die in a car accident.”

Bothe suffered a broken neck, a crushed face, a fractured skull and traumatic brain injuries, a local news station reported. He was brought back to life three times by doctors.

Lately, texting-- while walking has been an increasing issue-- for law enforcement. Distracted walkers can cause accidents or get themselves into dangerous situations.

We told you earlier this-- week about a Philadelphia man being so distracted by talking on his cellphone, that he fell onto train tracks and was knocked unconscious. Luckily for him, no trains were headed to the station at that time.

Cellphone distraction also infamously-- caused a man to nearly walk into a brown-- bear and resulted in one woman’s embarrassing moment falling into a mall fountain.

Earlier this summer, we asked you if you think texting-- while walking should be illegal. The majority-- of you said no, but had strong opinions about the dangers of texting and walking.
