Driving is the type of thing like chewing gum and walking, you can do two things at the same time. Whether it’s putting on some make up or reading a book, the perfect time to do something else is when you’re driving.

Just ask this guy, who decided he needed to live stream his race down the freeway, so followers could get a glimpse at him mugging for the camera and see his car go real fast. What’s weird is that while he was doing those things, he crashed his car. Really bad.

This driver, a 20-year-old from Providence, RI, is now in critical condition, and you can see the whole thing right up to the crash on YouTube because he was streaming his collision course.

It’s not like people driving and looking at their phone endangers other drivers. It’s not like driving is an incredibly dangerous activity that no one seems to respect at all.

Wait, what am I saying? Please stop playing at your phones when you’re driving.

Sweet mother of mercy.

A toddler is resting comfortably after having to go through a very harrowing experience. A violent car crash separated his first two vertebrae from his skull causing an extreme medical emergency.

The Sun reported it first:



Jackson Taylor, 16-months-old, was in the car with his mum and sister when they collided head on with another vehicle at around 70mph.

The force of the crash was so bad that Jackson's head pulled apart from his neck, in what's known as an internal decapitation.

Spinal surgeon Dr Geoff Askin said: "A lot of children wouldn't survive that injury in the first place, and if they did and they were resuscitated then they may never move or breathe again."

But after a gruelling six hour surgery, Dr Askin and his team of expert surgeons managed to reattach his vertebrae, using a tiny piece of wire and a piece of Jackson's rib to graft them back together.



Fortunately, the operation was a success and Taylor is recuperating nicely.

There's a nice video showing the happy baby, healing well.

A firefighter in Mississippi is being called a hero after using his cell phone to show animated film Happy Feet on the side of the road to a young crash victim.

The crash happened on Saturday in the town of D'lberville when an SUV carrying one adult driver and five children flipped several times. All of them were taken to the hospital with injuries, one child transported while still trapped in a child-restraint seat, the Sun Herald reported.

A photo taken from the crash showed D'Iberville firefighter Casey Lessard playing Happy Feet for one of the children as they lay next to the wreckage.

"The kids … we do whatever we can to calm them down," D'Ibervile Fire Capt. Darren Peterson said. "The video calmed him down instantly."

Journalist John Thomas posted an update to Facebook Tuesday morning saying that the young boy was out of the hospital, but two of the other children were still in critical condition. A GoFundMe page has been set up for the family.

Lenny B. Robinson, known all over as the Route 29 Batman, tragically died Aug. 16.

The 51-year-old businessman was on his way home from a car show when he has some car trouble, pulled over and was then hit by an oncoming vehicle.

According to The Washington Post:

Robinson had just stopped at a gas station, where he met a family whose children were interested in his custom-made car, Maryland state police in Hagerstown said. Robinson gave the kids some superhero paraphernalia before leaving about the same time as his new acquaintances. When they saw him pull over, they did the same and witnessed the 10:30 p.m. accident, state police said.

Robinson was having engine trouble and stopped "partially in the fast lane," according to a state police news release. He was checking the engine when the Batmobile was struck by a Toyota Camry. The Batmobile then hit him. Robinson was pronounced dead at the scene.



He had made a name for himself, dressing up as the Caped Crusader and visiting sick children in hospitals, handing out Batman paraphernalia to those who needed some inspiration.

It's the really sad loss of a man who spent much of his own free time and money trying to lift the spirits of children.
