Texting and Driving Causes Death of Infant

Recently we have been talking a lot about the dangerous and even fatal repercussions of driving and texting. We have spoken about a teenager who was distracted by his phone and killed a pedestrian on a Saturday night. Last time, we spoke about how one study conducted by Car and Driver magazine showed that texting and driving is more dangerous than drinking and driving. The study showed that the drivers’ reaction times were slower while texting and driving than the drivers’ reaction times were while impaired. Obviously, the combination is not safe. Stein Law Bronx injury attorneys understand these types of cases and how to handle them.

Today, we report another example that demonstrates the deadly consequences of texting and driving. Last week a 6-month-old infant was killed in a car accident in Washington state that was caused by texting and driving. Tragically, the young baby was the only fatally and the rest of the infant’s family members walked away from the crash unscathed. Again, the worst part of the fatal accident is that it was completely preventable. Investigators that attended the crash say the number of drivers’ texting and driving continues to increase. Police warn drivers that they will “dig into” drivers’ phone records to prove phone use at the time of accidents.

The car accident that killed the 6-month old occurred at an intersection regulated by a stoplight. The family’s vehicle was stopped at the light and a driver in an SUV smashed into the stopped car. The infant was seated in the back seat and was closest to the point of impact. The 6-month old suffered a bruised windpipe and fractured skull. The child died a few days later. The driver of the SUV denied texting while driving until officers informed him they would subpoena his records. Commenting on the car accident, an officer said, “There’s nothing that important that you can’t stop for 2 seconds to make that call or send a text.”

Drivers Aren’t the Only Ones Who Text on the Road

As we have discussed over the last two weeks, distracted driving is a significant cause of car accidents and that taking your eye off of the road for what seems like only a few seconds can have catastrophic consequences. Distracted drivers though are no longer the only targets of distracted road use, lawmakers in two states want to also confront distracted pedestrians. The proposed laws would ban the use of cell phones, music players and other electronic devices by non-motor vehicle users of the road.

According to the Governors Highway Safety Association, pedestrians account for around 12 percent of fatal car accidents in the United States. While the majority of states have laws against texting while driving, similar laws for pedestrians are practically unheard of. Lawmakers in Arkansas and New York may be starting a trend. A proposed law in Arkansas would prevent pedestrians, runners and bicyclists from using headphones on both ears while in proximity of any roadway. The state lawmaker that proposed the bill said the point was to make sure that all users of the road are aware of their surroundings.

In the Northeast, lawmakers in New York have been trying to pass a distracted pedestrian law since 2007. The proposed law there would prevent pedestrians from using cell phones, music players or any other electronic gadget while crossing the street in a city with a population of 1 million or more. A state lawmaker that represents a district in Brooklyn said that he has seen far too many pedestrians get into car accidents because they were “wired up” and not paying attention to the scene around them. The state lawmaker argues that a distracted pedestrian law is no different than a distracted driver law. While it is not clear whether distracted pedestrian laws will take off around the country, all users of the road should strive to be aware.
