Analysis:

Photograph claims to show a severe car crash that occurred as a result of the motorist texting while driving. It is said that the mobile was still in the driver’s hand, but his head was in the backseat. Although the accident shown in the photograph is real, the details and the reasons behind it are not clear.

This photograph showing the dangerous collision of a Chevrolet Corvette and a tractor-trailer has been circulating online for many years, with various stories attached to it. The messages claim that the accident occurred as a result of texting while driving, and warn people not to do the same.

The accident shown in the picture is real, it happened in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey back on 29 July 2005. As reported by the newspaper The Record, Bergen County, NJ on record-bergen.vlex.com, 58 year old Joseph Gianelli was killed on spot in the accident, but the details and reasons behind the crash were not mentioned. Further investigation into the crash incident was reported. However, note that texting while driving was not a common issue back in 2005.

So it appears like the photograph is used to warn people against texting while driving. Texting while driving is certainly dangerous and has caused very serious traffic accidents. In fact this is the reason why mobile phone use while driving is made illegal and punishable in most places. Avoiding mobile phone usage while driving will not only help you reach your destination safely, it will as well keep the fellow people on road safe.
