Fatal Auto Accident Caused by Texting and Driving


A 42-year-old Knightdale, North Carolina man has been charged with texting while driving after causing a fatal auto accident. The auto accident occurred last Monday on US-64 at approximately 6 a.m. when a westbound Pontiac van was rear-ended and pushed off the roadway by a GMC Envoy. The van overturned in a wooded area. The 53-year-old female driver of the van was tragically killed. The passengers of the van included her husband and her 16-year-old daughter. Both passengers were seriously injured but expected to recover. The man driving the Envoy was texting at the time of the crash and sustained minor injuries. It is against the law to text while driving in North Carolina. The Envoy driver may face more charges. The accident is still under investigation.

It is not against the law to text while driving in the state of Missouri. Missouri roadways are plagued with distracted drivers. If you have been a victim of distracted driving, you may be granted financial compensation for the injuries and damages you have sustained. Why should you be responsible for all the damages when you did not cause the auto accident?
