A British teenager could face up to four years in prison for texting while driving…

…and then crashing into a grandmother's vehicle and killing her.

Oops.


Rachel Begg was found to have used her cellphone nine different times in the 15 minutes prior to the accident, which took place on a dark, rainy night while she was driving nearly 70 miles-per-hour.

Oops.
