A few weeks ago, a 20 year old North Dakota woman was charged with vehicular homicide. On May 27, 2014, she was traveling down the road at 85 mph and rear ended another vehicle that was occupied by an 89 year old woman. The impact killed the elderly woman. What makes this case unique is that the at-fault driver was using Facebook on her cell phone when she caused the fatal crash.

With the advent of smartphones, there are new and diverse ways for drivers to become distracted. While police officers often suspect that car crashes are caused due to drivers distracted driving, they do not often investigate this issue. Here, the officers in North Dakota sought a warrant to search the at-fault driver's phone to determine that she had become dangerously distracted while looking at Facebook photos.

At Anderson Hemmat, we know from representing hundreds of victims of distracted driving that there is no acceptable level of smartphone usage while driving. It is extremely dangerous to text, drive, or Facebook while sitting behind the steering wheel of a moving car. Tragedies like the one in North Dakota occur when people decide to drive distracted. If you have been injured by a distracted driver in Colorado, please call us today for a free consultation.
