While this story is tragic, it is unfortunately not uncommon. “Seeing people driving and every second they’re looking down, looking in their lap” said bicyclist Sean McHugh. In a society where technology dictates our lives, accidents like these are bound to occur unless we smarten up and realize the power we hold while being behind the wheel. You can take someone’s life away by answering that phone call. Not everyone is as likely as Bert Hill; many perish in the clash of technology and reality.
