She Slammed Into The Bus And Died Instantly, What They Found In Her Hands Is Heartbreaking

Several years ago, I bought a car that has one of those touchscreens in the center console and all of the little buttons on the steering wheel that control just about everything in the car.

The first week I had the car I would sit in the driveway for about twenty minutes at a time getting myself acclimated to using the steering wheel controls to do everything from turning up the volume of the radio to answering a phone call.

The reason is that you do not want to take your eyes off the road for so much as a second. If my wife and I are both driving together and one of us gets a message of some kind the other will simply answer it for whoever is driving.

There are too many people that don’t understand that there are some things that can wait until you get to wherever it is you are going to use your phone. Some people find this out far too late.

When the Mississippi Highway Patrol rushed to the scene of a deadly crash, what they found there will forever be a tragic reminder of the danger of using a cellphone while driving.

Early in the morning on Sept. 5, Katelyn Ray, 17, was driving on a highway in Panola County, Mississippi, to pick up her older sister from work when she rear-ended a school bus, filled with over a dozen students.

Thankfully, no one on the bus was injured and another school bus was called to take the students to school.

Tragically, Katelyn did not survive.

The Chester County Sheriff’s Office posted photos of the accident on Facebook with a grave warning to others: Katelyn appeared to have been using her cellphone when the crash occurred.

“***PAY ATTENTION!!*** The driver of the car was 17 years old,” the post read. “No black marks because she never hit the brakes and she still had the cell phone in her hand when they removed her from the car.”

“I said don’t forget to pick your sister up,” Katelyn’s mother Shelia Ray told CW30. “She said OK. Love you. And I said I love you too.”

That was the last time Shelia would speak to her daughter.
