Inattention wipes out a family

Three siblings and their friend are dead, and their mother is in a coma, because some guy in a big-ass brodozer wasn’t paying attention and rear ended them at speed. Cops said that video from a nearby surveillance camera indicated the truck driver didn’t hit the brakes until less than one second before he killed the kids. They suspect he was on his phone. The article doesn’t say, but I imagine the truck driver walked away unhurt.

I can’t even tell what kind of car that was. But it looks to be about the same size as the car my wife drives. When I drive her Civic, there are many times when I stop at a light and find the bumper/brush guard of a truck at my head level. So much for crumple zones.

This just makes me so angry.
