Driving under the influence is universally recognized as an incredibly dangerous and foolish undertaking, and has been publicly decried by parent organizations and car companies alike. But what can be just as dangerous, and might not receive the same level of attention, is distracted driving. Instead of driving poorly due to inhibited senses, distracted drivers simply don’t pay attention to the road, and as a result fail to anticipate and compensate for the traffic around them. Distracted drivers pose a great threat to road safety, and can cause crashes all the time. In such a situation, it would be wise to contact an expert personal injury attorney at 617-787-3700.
On their way home from an annual three-day Baptist retreat, thirteen parishioners from the First Baptist Church of New Braunfels, in Texas, were killed after a car crashed into their bus. According to reports, the bus was struck by a teen who was texting while driving. Video captured by other drivers shows the teen’s car swerving and driving erratically, as these other drivers attempt to get the police to stop the driver. Unfortunately, their attempts were too late, and the driver crashed into the bus containing the church officials, resulting in a horrible crash and tragic wrongful deaths. Only one passenger on the bus survived the ordeal.
