Cell Phone Use Expected in Truck Accident Case
A driver that took her own life in a truck accident may have been using her cell phone when the collision occurred.
Officers with the local police department are still investigating the fatal truck accident that took the life of a woman recently. Their initial reports show that the woman had veered off the roadway when she attempted to steer back on. However, she overcorrected, causing her truck to overturn. The vehicle landed on the driver's side, causing her fatal injuries.
Since an open cell phone was next to her body when officers arrived, they believe that she may have been talking or texting. The phone could be the reason why she swerved off the roadway in the first place and police say that blood work may be completed to see if alcohol or drugs are to blame.
