Despite frequent reminders to drive safely, many teenagers believe that a car accident could never happen to them. Among the more foolish things that many teen drivers engage in more frequently than other motorists is driving and texting.
In Lexington, police are saying that texting while driving has claimed the life of another victim. The car accident happened as Davidson County sheriffs were conducting a roadblock during bridge construction over Abbotts Creek. Due to the roadblock, northbound traffic was reduced to two lanes, which reduced the average speed of the traffic to about 5 miles-per-hour.
