Texting while driving is a horrible and dangerous idea, but what's worse is saying "I just don't care" like 21-year-old Kimberley Davis did after slamming her car into a cyclist (injuring his spine) while texting behind the wheel.

Although she called emergency responders upon hitting the cyclist, the injured man says he was left lying on the side of the road because Davis refused to render him any assistance after running him over. But wait, there's more.

The shocking words spoken by the young Australian driver in her statement to police show that her only regret seems to selfishly be over the dents this incident left on her 'pretty expensive' car.

"I just don't care because I've already been through a lot of bullshit and my car is like pretty expensive and now I have to fix it."

"I'm kind of pissed off that the cyclist has hit the side of my car. I don't agree that people texting and driving could hit a cyclist. I wasn't on my phone when I hit the cyclist."


According to reports, police have since discovered Davis sent 44 text messages and was texting with up to seven different phone numbers while driving that evening.

Driver Kimberley Davis has since been fined $4,500 and lost her licence for nine months. The cyclist is expected to recover (with the use of a spinal cage), as the spinal fracture caused by the crash was serious enough to require surgery
