Woman Dies in Horrific Accident, “Texting” a Possible Contributor
Posted on July 20th, 2010 by Zane Cagle
A 21 year old woman crashed into a semi truck and was ejected from her car when she was then struck by a second tractor trailer on Sunday afternoon. Officials pronounced the woman dead at the scene. A witness reported that they had seen the woman texting just before the crash. She lost control of her 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue and left the highway, striking a guardrail. She then spun back into the highway and struck a tractor trailer.
After crashing into the first tractor trailer, she was thrown from her car and then struck by the second tractor trailer. The crash remains under investigation and due to the damage to the car, it cannot be determined if she was wearing a seat belt. However, her phone has been recovered for investigation as to time and use to determine if “texting” was a contributing ordering paroxetine factor in the horrific accident. No reports were made in regard to the injuries the drivers of the tractor trailers may have sustained.
