Here’s one way to draw attention to the dangers of texting while driving: In Missouri, a man was so busy using his cell phone while driving that he plowed into two stopped police cars.
The crash sent two police officers to the hospital with minor injuries.
The fact that the officers only received minor injuries doesn’t do justice to this story. Both police cars are total losses, as you can see from video taken by WDAF-TV.
Police were stopped on Interstate 29 because of a one-car accident.
The texting driver ran into the back of one stopped police car, knocking it into another one. Police say there’s no evidence that brakes were applied before the crash.
Police charged the texting driver with DWI, careless driving and failure to yield. Missouri just passed a ban on texting, but it only applies to drivers under 21. This driver was 25.
