21 year old Victoria, Texas, College student Chance Bothe is admittedly lucky to be alive after a terrible texting while driving accident. While making the thirty mile commute back to his hometown of Ganado, AL, he was texting while driving and drove off the road into a ravine. Ironically, his last texted prior to the crash was “I need to quit texting because I could die in a car accident.”

After the texting while driving crash, Mr. Bothe suffered a punctured lung, broken ankle, facial fractures, multiple lacerations, and a traumatic skull fracture. Only now, nearly 6 months after the texting while driving crash, is he finally able to talk about the dangers of texting while driving and how lucky he is to be alive. “They just need to understand, don’t do it. Don’t do it. It [texting while driving] is not worth losing your life,” said Mr. Bothe, according to NBC-affiliate WAFF in Huntsville, Ala. “I’m surprised that’s not me up in that casket. I came very close to that, to being gone forever.”
