Don't text and drive.
A terrifying crash in Fort Myers, Florida, was recently captured by an officer's dash cam.
The cause: texting while driving.
On January 4, Officer Ivan Moorer of the Fort Myers Police Department started trailing a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am after he noticed it swerving erratically.
The driver, Michael James Woody Jr., 23, wasn't drunk. He was just texting.
After Woody made "the world's worst right turn," he accelerated across the lane and onto the sidewalk, striking a guardrail, bus stop sign and tree, before flipping over, according to the crash report.
The video shows a shaken-up Woody crawling out the window of the overturned car.
Woody, who was promptly cited for both careless driving and texting while driving, survived the crash uninjured.
Here's hoping he's learned his lesson.
