Prepare to be outraged. An Atlanta-area 18-year-old driver took Snapchat photos while driving her father's Mercedes 113 miles per hour in September 2015. The teen told her friend in the car that she was trying to reach 100 MPH so she could Snapchat the speed.
Basically, all phones have built in accelerometers (something that detects motion in your phone, this has legitimate uses like determining how long it will take you to reach a destination based on your current movements). But Snapchat has a filter where you can take videos or pics and it displays how fast you are going on the screen.
Suffice to say, she crashed the car and hit an Uber driver at more than 100 miles per hour. The injured man is suing the driver and Snapchat.
The man she crashed into, an Uber driver, is now suing Snapchat (and probably the teen girl's family) for damages. Does Snapchat have any responsibility here?
And to pile up more stupid, she took a photo of herself in traction with a caption that read, "Lucky to be alive." Why couldn't have Darwin taken this one?
