We are all afraid of having our day ruined by a drunk driver. What we don’t consider is that crashes just as horrific can be caused by sober but distracted drivers. Just this week we saw such an accident, when a woman may have been texting while driving. This decision to text and drive could be the major contributing factor to a three car accident that occurred at East 38th Street and North Butler Avenue.
The 28-year-old woman driving a passenger car veered across the center line hitting a moving truck, causing the truck to lose control and hit an SUV. Multiple witnesses have said that the woman was swerving all over the road while “appearing to text” despite have two juveniles in the vehicle with her. The two adults and an infant from the SUV where taken to the hospital, as well as the women and her passengers. The two men in the moving truck escaped unharmed physically, but stress of an accident can cause unseen effects, sometimes coming to light long after the accident.
This is just one example of the blatant negligence that we face on our Indiana roadways. Even with laws such as Indiana Code 9-21-8-59, which states that use of a phone for texting or any action while driving is illegal unless used in conjunction with voice operated technology, we still have people putting others lives at risk for a lack of patience. This is not the type of situation that a family can face alone.
