2/23/2011A recent Cobb County car accident serves as a reminder that cell phones aren’t the only driving distractions. Four people were injured after a driver stopped in the middle road while arguing with a passenger.
The accident occurred at about 4 a.m. on Sunday, February 20, 2011. The 23-year-old female driver of a red Dodge Durango was traveling northbound on Cobb Parkway near Field Parkway. She was arguing with her 25-year-old male passenger when she suddenly stopped the car. The Durango was rear-ended by a silver Lexus ES350 travelling in the same lane.
There were two people in the Durango and they were both taken to Grady Memorial Hospital for treatment of injuries. The occupants of the Lexus also sustained injuries and were taken to Kennestone Hospital.
The Georgia distracted driving accident is under investigation and charges are pending.
While cell phones and texting devices receive a lot of blame for distracted driving accidents, it is important to remember that there are all types of driver distractions. Distracted driving occurs any time a driver’s attention is focused on something other than driving.
