Distracted Driving May Have Caused Alabama Car Accident

Distracted Driving May Have Caused Alabama Car Accident

Distracted driving is a major problem in Alabama. The Alabama Car Accident Lawyers with Norris Injury Lawyers point out that each year, distracted driving is believed to contribute to a large number of injuries and deaths in the state.

Distracted driving accidents continue to occur despite legislation that prohibits all motorists from texting and driving and novice drivers from using handheld electronic devices at all while at the wheel of vehicles.

To put into perspective just how common distracted driving accidents are, a woman is currently under investigation in Adamsville, Alabama, after causing an accident that killed one man and injured a woman. According to an article from ABC 33-40 News, the incident occurred on Nov. 16 along a blocked off section of Highway 78 where the victim was working.

Reports indicate the victim was performing maintenance duties for the state along the highway when he was struck by a small pickup truck. The vehicle then careened into the path of a woman and nearly severed her arm.

Police say they are examining the driver’s phone records, due to suspicions the motorist was distracted at the time of the accident.

Crashes like these are why Norris Injury Lawyers’ team of Alabama Personal Injury Attorneys ask all motorists to stay safe by putting their phones down while driving.
