A big rig driver is in big legal trouble after he plowed into three Arizona Department of Public Service vehicles that were pulled over on Interstate 8 assisting in a minor crash, sadly resulting in the death of one of the DPS officers. Now, it is being reported that the truck driver was allegedly looking at photos on his cell phone at the time of the crash. The distraction was enough that the driver did not merge left to give the parked vehicles extra room, and instead drifted directly into them. A distracted driver is a dangerous weapon against all other drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, and their own passengers. If that distracted driver is behind the wheel of a semi truck travelling 65 miles an hour or more, it is a certain recipe for disaster.
The driver is facing serious charges: 20 felony charges including second degree murder.
