The improper use of a cell phone may be the reason that a fatal plane crash occurred recently in Denver. The new fad of taking selfies while driving has led to a horrible tragedy. The Denver pilot lost control of his plane and crashed and he and his passenger were both killed. According to the investigating team from the National Transportation Safety board (NTSB), there was a GoPro camera mounted in the plane that showed the pilot taking selfies just before he lost control and crashed.
Distracted driving, or in this case distracted flying, is horribly dangerous and can lead to awful consequences. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 71% of young drivers admit to texting while driving. It is believed that distracted driving leads to more and more car accidents per year.
