Nicole King, American Studies, in the Baltimore Sun

Nicole King, assistant professor of American studies, learned the dangers of texting while walkinghard way according to the story “Texting while walking emerging as possible danger for pedestrians, drivers,” which appeared in the Baltimore Sun on May 29.

While spending a night out-of-town for a wedding, King was typing out a message to friends when the combination of a bench and gravity came together for a less-than-ideal outcome.

“My face hit the bench on the way down,” King told the Sun, with the results including stitches and a black eye. Despite such a hard lesson, King remains a “pedtextrian,” stating that despite the experience, “I still do it… all over Baltimore.”
