Cell Phone Triggers Fatal Crash

A 6-year-old girl from Grant County, Wash., died Monday evening in a one-car rollover accident that occurred when her mother, the driver, reached for a cell phone, sheriff’s deputies said. Carla Avila-Juarez died at the accident scene at 6:22 p.m. Monday on Dodson Road South about eight miles north of Royal City. She was not properly restrained in a child seat and was partly ejected, according to Undersheriff John Turley/Mike Prager, SR. More here.

Question: Do stories make you consider not using your cell phone as much while driving?
