These kinds of crazy stories are usually from elsewhere. However, this most recent example of the perils of distracted driving happened right here in Colorado. This story was reported by KUSA, Denver’s NBC affiliate station, and rebroadcasted on CNN as a cautionary tale to those who think that even a moment of texting and driving is acceptable. Clearly, even a split second of distraction while driving can be dangerous.
At Anderson, Hemmat & McQuinn, we encourage Colorado drivers to put your phone down while driving. Distracted driving endangers yourself and other drivers on the road. If you have been injured by a texting driver, please call and speak with one of our Denver personal injury attorneys today.
