My daughter wrecked her new car yesterday. Yeah... she's fine. Her ego was bruised more than anything. We had just bought her a brand new car for her birthday last week, A pretty little red convertible.

She was riding, talking on that darn phone not paying attention to what was going on and went around a corner to fast and flipped the thing.

She wasn't wearing any seat belt so it threw her out of the car. We are very lucky she didn't get hurt. There was a guy there who saw the whole thing and just happened to have a camera with him.

Shocked he got the whole thing on film. You can see she still has that phone in her hand I think we are gonna have to take it away from her.

Glad she’s ok.

Phones kill more people than they save. I see on the freeway every time I’m out, nearly 1/3 of every person driving, is talking at the same time. Crazy...

It could be worse. I had an old girlfriend who’s brother wrecked the family’s brand new car on his birthday, the second day that they had owned it.

Put it upside down in a ditch. Miracle he didn’t kill himself and his friends.

Thank God she’s alive. Thank God she’s unhurt. Thank God no one else was killed or hurt.

It’s your call, but I would confiscate the car and her phone for at least six months. Pain makes lessons more memorable. Yes, I understand the wailing will be terrible to hear.

When you finally return them, be sure to remind her why you took them away in the first place.

REading the posts, there are a few people who didn't scroll down before responding. Baby is cute. My 2 year old drives the same way, but she has a motorcycle (Dora). Can't get her to wear a helmet either. Lately she has taken to wearing lots of jewelry to draw more attention. I guess I am going to have to crack down on her.

What irony.

Your dislike for cell phones distracted you so much from what was goning on around you that you missed a great story.

You had me going. You’re right, it is too cute not to share. I been there and got the tee shirt.

During an icy snow storm, my 16-yo newly licensed daughter “needed” to go to the “library” for “research”. I was adamant against the idea, but she prevailed on her mother and I was overruled. I offered to drive her there, stay the whole time (quietly reading in another part of the library). Conditions were so icy that even an experienced driver didn’t belong on the road, let alone anyone with zero winters driving experience.

I think you know where this is going. She winds driving Mon’s Camry into a telephone pole on a road far from the library, that leads not to the library but to the mall.

I sucked it up and gave her the old, “you’re alright and that’s all that matters” speech, though I was seething inside. (I think she and her mother ‘sensed’ my rage. Women have great intuition about these things.)

I was already composing the email telling you to go easy on her (did something similar when I was a kid) when I saw the picture.

Thanks for sharing that.

I love it. Look at the training wheels on Tyke Byke. Too cute.

She is one of those kids that would try to flirt her way out of the ticket.
