Friend: "It was bound to happen"

2 December, 2007 (Muncie, IN): One teen is a dead and a man is injured after a head-on collision early Sunday morning. Tiffany Geere (pictured) was found dead on the scene; the driver of the other vehicle was hospitalized and is listed in good condition. Police believe that Geere swerved her vehicle into oncoming traffic after becoming preoccupied with her iPhone.
The recovered iPhone reveals that Geere, 17, is the latest teen to fall victim to widely publicized, much hyped, teen-killing phenomena. The victim's web history indicates that Geere was using her iPhone to upload her address and social security number onto her MySpace site at the time of the collision. Text messages sent just minutes before the accident, presumably while the victim was driving, have led police to believe that Geere was on the way to meet a local sex offender. Additionally, a toxicology report found evidence of a plethora of prescription drugs and narcotics in the victim's system including, but not limited to, qualudes, oxycodone, ecstasy, vicodin, and "cheese", the latest teen drug sensation concocted from heroin and Tylenol PM.
Authorities believe Geere was wearing her seatbelt.
The apparent multiple causes of the accident were especially shocking to the victim's father, local TV anchorman Brian Geere. Geere is best known for his Local Emmy Award winning weekly segment "What's Killing Our Children," which has shed light on dangerous teen behaviors ranging from texting while driving to prescription drug abuse.
