Sad that the driver died. Glad that this Fire Department managed their scene well so that no one else was harmed.

Just have to say it: driving is a task that looks simple and easy but really isn't--it requires sobriety and attention. So don't take mood/sensory altering substances and drive, and for crying out loud, put the phone down.

Oh, and slip on that seatbelt.
