Didn't see that written in the article. Maybe a medical event? Don't jump to conclusions.

the text got sent before the impact? Glad the driver was not hurt, and the phone not damaged so the driver could put on farcebook that they had an accident? Drivers.... learn to DRIVE.... and PAY ATTENTION! Someone could have been standing at the rear of the vehicle that was hit. How would you feel then? The phone is not that important?

Should the Christmas/New Year school holidays be moved to February when the weather is typically better in NZ?

Yes, that is when I would take my holidays.
No, you never know when there is going to be bad weather.
