This photo was on my FB today and I was so troubled by it, I felt I needed to show it to you – as a sobering reminder.

We never think it will happen to us…

This was the text written with the photo:

DO NOT TEXT AND DRIVE! The front trailer was heading home from the barrel race in Vegas. She was stopped in traffic, the driver behind was going approx. 80 mph and never hit his brakes. Horse in the 2nd stall was killed and horse in the first stall is injured but expected to recover. His trailer was empty. There are more gruesome pics but I wont post them. Absolutely heartbreaking…

    How incredibly sad. What would this guy have done if he ran into the vehicle instead and killed the people. Dumb ass people. If it’s that important pull over!!!!!!!

    It may be pointless to say this but why would anyone drive a truck and rig at 80 mph?

    Oh my God! That is heartbreaking!

    Better yet, STAY OFF THE FREAKIN’ PHONE people!!! There is absolutely NO reason to be on it while you are driving! 25 years ago we had no cellphones and did just fine driving without them. Pay attention to your surroundings.
