This tragic story from the BBC has an interesting twist which leads me to believe that she didn't bother to read the text she had written for this article or she was asleep when she wrote it. I think in the old days news and wire services struggled mightily to be accurate. Nowadays, they struggle mightily to remain relevant and akracy can go to the devil.

A lorry driver who killed two charity cyclists in Cornwall has been jailed for eight and a half years. 
Truro Crown Court heard that delivery driver Palmer, 32, of Bude, in Cornwall had almost definitely fallen asleep at the wheel when he hit Andrew McMenigall and Toby Wallace on the A30 in 2013. 
He had had no proper sleep for 24 hours and was texting at the time the accident occurred. 
Leigh Rundle reports.
It's one or the other Leigh but you aren't allowed to say both.

I think there should probably be a law against texting while sleeping. That sounds dangerous.

It is funny that you would write that. I can absolutely guarantee that somewhere there is a community that is debating passing an ordinance against texting while sleeping. Ambien, alcohol and poor defenseless coeds will be involved.
