Early Sunday morning, around 2:30 a.m. a rollover crash occurred on the East-side of San Antonio, near Loop 1604 and Interstate-10. According to police, the 19-year-old driver was taking directions from two passengers that were in the car with him. One of the passengers told the driver to go left, the other told him to go right. Soon, the driver drove straight over a bridge, causing a rollover. One of the passengers, a 20-year-old man in the backseat was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver and the front-seat passenger were taken to University Hospital for their injuries. The driver is said to have suffered critical injuries.
Right behind speeding, distracted driving is the second most common cause of accidents. One out of every five accidents in the U.S is caused by distracted driving. The invention of cell phones, and the increasing popularity of social media has lead to a rise in distracted driving. Distracted driving reduces your reaction time. This could lead to an accident, that would otherwise have been preventable if you were paying attention. However, cell phone use is not the only cause of distracted driving. Passengers are often the cause of distracted driving. That’s why it’s important to always stay focused on the road when driving.
