89 Year Old Great Grandmother Killed in Horror Crash by 20 Year Old Motorist Distracted by Facebook

I love Facebook. I love posting pictures of my trips, my food and especially my kids. But I NEVER EVER Facebook and drive, because horrible things like what happened to this Great Grandmother HAPPEN ALL THE TIME:

An SUV up ahead slowed to make a U-turn, but Sletten – distracted by photos on her cell phone – never slowed her 85 miles per hour as she plowed into the back of the vehicle and killed passenger Gordon.

Investigators found no evidence that Sletten of Hatton, had tried to brake before the crash, which ‘suggested the possibility that Sletten may have not seen the vehicle in front of her or that she was possibly distracted while driving,’ read the complaint.

Sletten told a patrol officer that she had no recollection of the crash.

Gordon’s granddaughter, driver Jennifer Myers, 34, and Myers’ daughter survived their injuries.

Several people at the crash scene tried to use CPR to try and revive Gordon, but to no avail.

Gordon was a farmer and baker and was an active community member in Ada, Minn., according to her obituary.

North Dakota enacted a 2011 law prohibiting the use of cell phones while driving.

First, this is a horrible tragedy. Secondly, I cannot believe this young woman is trying to claim that she has no memory of the crash. The worst kinds of people in the world are the ones that don’t even bother taking responsibility for their actions. Grow up, little girl. It’s time to face the consequences for taking a life.
