Idaho State Police reported a car crashed into a tow truck on I-15 north of Inkom. A vehicle traveling southbound on I-15 collided with a tow truck assisting another vehicle from a previous crash. Luckily the tow truck was unoccupied at the time of the crash. The vehicle that struck the tow truck came to rest in the lane of travel. Officials reported the driver that struck the tow truck was transported to a nearby medical center for evaluation of injuries but was wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident. Traffic was blocked for about an hour as crews worked to clear the car crash.
Why is Distracted Driving an Issue?
It is all too common for drivers to think sending a quick text won’t hurt. However, when you send a text, your eyes are off the road for about 5 seconds. In those 5 seconds, you will have traveled the length of a football field going 55 mph. These statistics are from the U.S. Department of Transportation. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has reported that at any moment during daytime hours, about 660,000 drivers are using cell phones or other electronic devices while driving.
It’s tempting to use your phone while driving. We get it. But the car accident attorneys at Brent Gordon Law would like to encourage drivers to pay attention to the road at all times! The few seconds it takes to look at your phone could likely cost you your life or cause you to injure or kill someone else.
