Teenager Bethany Benson had a habit that we’re all guilty of at some point – putting her feet on the dash. This additional leg room however, cost the teenager her entire lifestyle as a normal adult. The 26-year-old and her boyfriend drove back home after visiting her mother. During the ride, she reclined her seat and rested her feet on the dash.
There was an accident up ahead that involved a tractor trailer. Bethany’s boyfriend did not manage to brake on time, even though he did so. Their car slammed right onto the back of the tractor.
The impact of the car crash inflated the air bags, which sent Bethany’s knees right into her face. Bethany’s boyfriend required 100 stitches for his injuries alone.
Bethany however, was in a much more serious condition. She suffered broken cheekbones, a broken nose and a cracked left eye socket.
Alas, life would no longer be the same for this teenager.
At a great force and speed of 200 mph, this incident has crippled and damaged her forever. Her feet were severely deformed due to the impact, and she could no longer wear proper shoes.
Bethany’s favorite hobby since she was a child was horseback riding. Unfortunately, she had to give it up – she can no longer walk properly, let alone ride a horse!

Remember – safety is always a priority, no matter where you are!
