In Huntsville, Alabama, Chance Bothe was texting and driving when his truck flew off a bridge and into a ravine.

Ironically, moments before he and his truck flew off the bridge, Bothe texted: "I need to quit texting, because I could die in a car accident."

Chance survived the crash, but suffered numerous injuries including a broken neck, crushed face, fractured skull, and brain injuries, reports WLBT-TV.

On top of all that, he was legally dead three times, while doctors tried to save his life.

Six months after the crash, Bothe told WLBT-TV: "They just need to understand, don't do it. Don't do it. It's not worth losing your life. I went to my grandmother's funeral not long ago, and I kept thinking, it kept jumping into my head, I'm surprised that's not me up in that casket. I came very close to that, to being gone forever."
