This story is a reminder that it is important for all drivers using the roadway to keep a lookout for others. Many car accidents are caused when a driver’s attention is diverted from the roadway by objects such as cell phones, text messages, or the radio. Do not be another car wreck statistic; keep your focus on the road while driving.
