Driving and Cell Phones Don’t Mix

by on August 28, 2011 » Add the first comment.

As plaintiffs’ attorneys, we all too often see the unnecessary outcomes of careless driving.  Safely operating a three or four thousand pound vehicle in Atlanta traffic is no easy task, even for a careful and attentive driver.  Thus, when folks talk on their cell phone, read and send texts, or divert their attention away from the road, innocent people get hurt and killed.

Sadly, this past Thursday, three teenagers, legally walking on the side of the road on GA 138 (near Stockbridge in Clayton County) were struck and killed by an automobile whose driver wasn’t paying attention to the road.  The driver of the vehicle is alleged to have been on her cell phone and was reportedly under the influence when the incident occurred.  She was charged with vehicular homicide, driving under the influence, hit and run, and obstruction of an officer.  She was also charged with a suspended license, driving in the emergency lane, reckless driving, failure to exercise due care while on a cell phone, and no proof of insurance.

Our prayers and condolences go out to the families of the deceased.
