If you’ve ever wondered what the point of phone applications blocking you from driving and texting are, just ask 21-year-old Philippa Curtis.

Curtis, of Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, has been jailed for 21 months after smashing into a stationary car at 70mph while texting on her mobile phone, according to a report by the BBC.

The crash killed another motorist - Victoria McBryde – who was dealing with a burst tyre. After the impact, Curtis' vehicle twisted into the path of oncoming cars, hitting two of them.

Curtis admitted sending text messages while driving, but denied using her mobile phone at the time of the collision. The court was told she sent and received more than 20 text messages before the crash.

Judge Julian Hall stressed that driving and texting is "folly and madness".

The judge also handed Curtis a three-year driving ban. ®
