Benjamin Franklin’s last words were memorable because they were thoughtful: “A dying man can do nothing easy.”

This AT&T documentary from 2013 tells the heartbreaking story of a young girl dying on her way to her graduation — “all because of a senseless text message,” the police officer explains.

The victim Ashley’s sister tells the story, including the final details of her life. She was reading a text she had sent when she died.

“When she looked up, she had clipped the median on the left hand side of the road. Her truck flipped, and as it was flipping, she was actually ejected from the driver’s side door. And she landed in the ditch about 300 feet from the truck,” she shared.
