Back to the Future: Texting and driving leads to crash with trailer hauling liquid manure

Back to the Future: Texting and driving leads to crash with trailer hauling liquid manure
If killing or maiming your friends or yourself, and changing lives for the worst isn't enough to make you stop texting and driving, how about crashing into a trailer hauling a load of liquid manure? That is exactly what happened on Monday to a Wisconsin man named Matthew Bruhn who was driving a rental car. To be specific, it was a Ford Mustang convertible that the 37 year old had rented from Avis. The collision with the trailer hauling manure immediately called to mind Avis' slogan about being number 2 although they try harder.

We are pretty sure that Mr. Bruhn will now be called Biff by friends and enemies alike. Biff is the name of the character in the movie Back to the Future who drove his car into a trailer carrying manure. Of course, they didn't have texting back then.

The cops say Bruhn was finishing up a text and was also talking on his phone when he looked up to see the tractor just seconds before impact. The tractor driver was not hurt. Bruhn, on the other hand, suffered a broken finger and a bruised ego.  Remember, when it comes to texting and driving, it can wait.
