Police in Fort Myers saw the dangers of texting and driving first-hand.
An officer saw a car swerving and slowing down, so he turned on the dash cam and followed it.
The car then sped up, crossed the right lane, went over the sidewalk, hit a sign, crashed into a tree and flipped over.
Fortunately, the driver was able to crawl out of the car and was not seriously hurt.
He was charged with careless driving and texting while driving.
