After a short while the woman had reached a certain terminal and was supposed to give way.
Unfortunately, it was too late when she realized she had passed the terminal and she had collided with the truck.This created huge attention, all the people who were near the scene rushed to help the survivors.

The lady was later taken to the hospital although she had lost a lot of blood.The accident happened some minutes before ten in the evening and the shocking news was there was a young boy who was caught up with the accident.
This shocked a lot of people and people kept wondering what the boy was doing at that late hour.

Severe stress caused her mental disorders.
Different changes were needed to be taken in order to manage her stress. Accordingly, different type of stress has its own ways of changes to be undertaken in order to improve stress management.There are several ways in which the lady stress was managed. This includes eliminating all possible stressors and adjusting to any possible activity that fulfills the ladies heart desires. This involved; listening to music, reading novels, newspaper or magazines, watching movies, walking, taking therapist classes among other stress removers.To begin with, it was important to learn what the lady would take, handle and avoid what she can not handle.
This was important change for improving stress management since it was allowing her to know and stick to her limits.

Many of us have witnessed drivers so distracted by dialing and chatting that they resemble drunk drivers, weaving between lanes, for example, or nearly running down pedestrians in crosswalks. A number of bills to regulate use of cell phones on the road have been introduced in state legislatures, and the time has come to push for their passage. Regulation is needed because drivers using phones are seriously impaired and because laws on negligent and reckless driving are not sufficient to punish offenders.
Because of mounting public awareness of the dangers of drivers distracted by phones, state legislators must begin to take the problem seriously. “It’s definitely an issue that is gaining steam around the country,” says Matt Sundeen of the National Conference of State Legislatures (qtd. in Layton C9). Lon Anderson of the American Automobile Association agrees: “There is momentum building,” he says, to pass laws (qtd. in Layton C9).
The time has come for states to adopt legislation restricting the use of cell phones in moving vehicles.
