Police release unfinished text from teen as stark reminder

Alexander Heit, 22, was writing the message when his vehicle drifted onto oncoming traffic, and he went off the road

DENVER — Alexander Heit's final text cut off in mid-sentence. Before he could send it, police say the 22-year-old University of Northern Colorado student drifted into oncoming traffic, jerked the steering wheel and went off the road, rolling his car.

Heit died shortly after the April 3 crash, but his parents and police are hoping the photo of the mundane text on his iPhone will serve as a stark reminder to drivers.
