From the Associated Press:
Driver killed in crash had been texting
HIGHLAND — Authorities say a 16-year-old girl who died after losing control of her car had been texting on her cell phone moments before the accident. Full story
Alcohol and speeding were involved in this crash, according to the story. Still, the texting may have been a factor. Are teens (and adults) now texting instead of calling because they believe that act is less likely to be noticed by law enforcement? Will we see more texting-related accidents as a result?
