A woman found herself in a lake after she was too busy texting while driving, according to police reports in Maryland.

It seems like the phones are getting smarter, but the people who use them are getting dumber.

Charles County Police said that a local woman, 25, admitted to police that she drove directly into a lake in Waldorf because she was too busy texting at the wheel on Tuesday.

The Sheriff’s Office said the woman drove off the road, hit a tree and bounced into the Westfield lake.

The unidentified woman was able to escape through a window and was taken to a local hospital after suffering minor injuries. It is not known what the woman was texting at the time of the accident.

Police said that charges are pending against the woman.
