A woman in Australia injured a bicyclist when she slammed into him while texting and driving. Do you care? She doesn't. Well, not about him, anyway. But she does care about her shiny expensive car.
The woman, 21-year-old Kimberley Davis, was texting SEVEN different phone numbers while driving through western Victoria, Australia. Phone records revealed that she used her phone 44 times for the duration of her drive.
That's when, shortly after 7 p.m., she hit a bicyclist from behind — even though he had warning lights on the front and back of him. She called for help, but refused to help him herself. He ended up needing spinal surgery. This is what she said to police:
"I just don't care because I've already been through a lot of bullshit and my car is like pretty expensive and now I have to fix it."
"I'm kind of pissed off that the cyclist has hit the side of my car. I don't agree that people texting and driving could hit a cyclist. I wasn't on my phone when I hit the cyclist."
This is like punching someone in the face and then asking them why they ran into your fist. She was fined $4,500 and had her license suspended for nine months.
