You were texting. While you were texting you were 2000ft from the vehicle while travelling 73 mph.
At roughly 1000feet you set your phone on the passenger seat and reached 74mph.
While looking up to give full attention to the road in front of you, you are now less than 500feet from slamming on your brakes and crashing into the car in front of you.
You were distracted. Happens to novice drivers
