We've all been warned of the dangers of distracted driving, but a pair of photos that the Augusta Police Department posted on their Facebook page make the point better than any words can.

These photos on their Facebook page show what happened when a distracted driver ended up running into a telephone pole. The police note that the distraction was not cell phone use in their post:

This crash was the result of #distracteddriving (non cell phone use). When you are driving, please just drive. It's enough to have to watch the roadway and everything going on around you but when you also do other things inside your vehicle (eating, reading, putting on make up, texting or just "checking your phone") bad things can happen. Don't take your eyes off the road and get there safe and alive.
