Distracted driver has pole impaled through buttocks

Distracted driving in Colorado and the rest of the United States is a major problem. Every year, thousands of people are injured in car accidents because of distracted driving. A woman in Colorado recently was involved in a distracted driving accident and is encouraging others to learn from her story.

While driving, the woman received a text from her daughter stating that she needed her saxophone dropped off at school. The woman was running late for a meeting, so she decided to text her friend to let her know. She sent a voice text to her friend and quickly looked down at her phone. While looking down, she crashed into a guardrail pole. The pole went through the front of her truck and pierced her through the buttocks. Firefighters were able to get remove her from the vehicle and rush her to the local hospital, where she underwent emergency surgery. She is expected to be okay, but believes that her experience should serve as a reminder to people to not text and drive or engage in other distracting behavior while driving.

When a person is injured because of a distracted driver, his or her life can change in an instant. Distracted driving, including texting and driving, causes thousands of car accidents and serious injuries and deaths each year. If a person is injured in a car accident because of a negligent driver, a legal professional skilled in personal injury law can help. A personal injury attorney can conduct an independent investigation of the accident scene and work toward holding the negligent party responsible for their actions. Compensation is available for victims for medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of wages and other monetary and non-monetary damages.

Distracted driving leads to thousands of car accidents each year. A life can be changed in an instant because of distracted driving. It is important for people to realize how their actions can affect themselves and others and to always practice safe driving.
