1 killed in suspected texting-while-driving accident

Technology has given us a wide variety of different ways to communicate with each other. One such way is texting. Texting can be a very convenient way to communicate with friends, family and colleagues. However, it is very important for individuals to only use this technology in the proper time and place. One time in particular when people should never text is when they are driving. Texting while driving can greatly distract a driver and can lead to car accidents.

Recently, a fatal auto crash occurred in New Jersey in which texting while driving has been alleged.

The accident happened on Oct. 10. That day, a pickup truck was traveling along a road in Essex County. A 58-year-old man was an occupant of this pickup. The pickup was then struck by a vehicle that had moved into the pickup's lane. The vehicle that hit the pickup was being driven by a 35-year-old woman.

Authorities allege that the 35-year-old woman was texting while driving. Charges have been brought against her in relation to the collision.

The 58-year-old man was killed in the crash.

Given that auto collisions can have fatal results, one would hope that all motorists would make sure to not engage in texting while driving or other conduct that can cause motor vehicle accidents.

If a family has suffered the death of a loved one due to a car accident and believes that the accident was caused by a driver acting improperly, they should consider talking to a personal injury attorney. A personal injury attorney can help a family determine if pursuing a wrongful death claim is something they should consider.
