Documentary Reveals How Texting and Driving Claims Lives

Published on Sep 25, 2012 at 7:09 pm in Distracted Driving Accident.

When asked about the risks of texting and driving, most Kentucky drivers can name a few, such as car crashes, injuries, or vehicle damage. Even, in severe accidents, deaths. But even though they know what the risks are, too many Kentucky drivers decide to take the chance and text behind the wheel anyway, violating Kentucky law and believing that the worst consequences won’t happen to them.

The following documentary, which does contain some intense descriptions and images, seeks to bring home the consequences of texting and driving by sharing the stories of four people and families whose lives were permanently changed by a distracted driving accident involving texting. Telecommunications provider AT&T produced the documentary, which is available for free online here:

The documentary features personal stories about the profound costs of texting and driving from several people who have been personally affected by a severe crash. Among them are the families of two young women who lost control of their vehicles and died in the resulting crash because they were checking texts at the time. The documentary also features the story of a young man whose texting caused the death of a bicyclist, and another who suffered a permanent traumatic brain injury during a texting and driving crash.

Finally, the documentary talks to police officers who were first on the scene of severe texting crashes, discussing not only the damage, but the personal and emotional costs of the accidents.

If you or someone you love has been hurt in a texting and driving accident, experienced Louisville distracted driving lawyer Tad Thomas can help you determine what happened and seek compensation for your losses.
