Last May, a 20-year-old Facebook fan was allegedly looking at photos while speeding along a North Dakota highway when she smashed into an SUV that had slowed to make an illegal U-turn, killing an 89-year-old passenger, according to court records. Abby Sletten is accused of texting and having her eyes on Facebook photos instead of the road as she drove 85 miles per hour on I-29 towards Grand Forks.
