Distracted driving is on the rise, and as a result, so are the number of traffic accidents.
“Often, if you look past the surface of what seems to be noticeable after a wreck, whether it is between two cars, or a semi and another vehicle, you will find evidence of a cell phone, or smart phone in use. That is what happened in this reported case,” explained Stephen Ozcomert, an Atlanta injury lawyer, who practices personal injury, accidents and malpractice law in Georgia.
This two vehicle crash involved a pickup truck and a semi-truck. One of the vehicles was heading east on the road, and the other south on the parallel road, when they met in the intersection. The police were not able to determine which vehicle was heading in which direction, as the impact skewed everything around and left vehicles every which way on the side of the road. The scene was a complete mess of twisted steel, radiator fluid, busted windshield glass and torn rubber.
