Two Bellaire High School teens went on a Spring Break trip last week only to drive back home and have their family and friend’s lives change forever.
After taking a trip to South Padre Island, three of the teens (one whom is in critical condition), were driving back home in the Corpus Christi area when the driver was looking down at her GPS (Google Maps) because she felt she was lost and wanted to keep them headed in the right direction.
The driver then, distracted by her GPS, ran into an 18 wheeler truck as she tried to keep control of her vehicle. The two Bellaire High School girls, Brianna and Jade Robinson, both sisters, died in the terrifying car crash.
The family and friends of the teens still cannot wrap their heads around this happening to these girls. Jade had a scholarship to play volleyball in college and everything.
Counselors have been made available to Bellaire High School students to cope with their devastating lost.
It just makes you think. So many look at their phones to use the GPS, texting, Snapchat, Periscope and all of the other widgets that are made available on their phones. But, these girls were innocently just trying to make sure they were on the right path home….not on social media, not texting…just simply using their GPS. My heart goes out to the family and their friends for their loss! We have to do better. That text and that snap can wait until you pull over and get to your destination. These girls had no idea that something like this would happen to them. They just wanted to go to South Padre for a good time and get home afterwards.
The next time you think about moving your eyes off of the road to look at your phone, please think of these innocent girls. Think twice. Life is not promised and is indeed too short. Please pray for their family!
