Deadly car crash blamed on texting
Two young girls, 18 and 19 years-old, died at the scene of a deadly car crash late last month. Police investigators now say that they believe the 19 year-old driver was texting at the time.
The girl’s car began to drift to the right on Old Lincoln Highway when she over-corrected and drove into the next lane. She collided head-on with an airport shuttle van.
Investigators say the driver made a phone call at 11:10pm and sent a text message at 11:11pm. The crash took place just before 11:15 that night. They found alcohol in the vehicle, but police say that toxicology reports found no traces in their systems.
