(Newser) – A 25-year-old woman in Maryland has delivered unto the nation the latest public-service announcement about texting and driving in dramatic fashion: Police say she lost control of her Hyundai while looking at her phone, smacked a tree, then drove 60 feet into a lake in Waldorf, reports NBC Washington. The car ended up submerged in about 5 feet of water, and the woman was able to get out through a window before emergency crews arrived. She suffered only minor injuries, but charges are pending, reports WUSA9.
