WTHI reports that a teen has been injured in a Terre Haute auto accident as a result of using her cell phone while driving.
According to police, the 19-year-old was traveling eastbound when she lost control of her vehicle while reaching for her cell phone. The vehicle left the road and struck an embankment and then a culvert in the Terre Haute auto accident.
The teen was transported to the hospital and was treated and released following the Terre Haute auto accident. No citations were issued.
Do you think there should be mandatory laws everywhere restricting the use of cell phones while driving to prevent Terre Haute auto accident? What about other things that distract drivers, like eating; do you think this should be illegal as well to prevent Terre Haute auto accidents?
