A lawsuit has recently been filed, hoping to break new legal ground, by suing NOT only the person who was texting and driving, but ALSO the person WHO the driver was texting!
The young driver who was texting and crossed over the yellow line, hitting an oncoming motorcycle, causing both passengers to each lose a leg and sustain other injures, is NOT the only one in trouble. The girl whom he was texting has been included in the lawsuit as a Defendant, because she KNEW or SHOULD HAVE KNOWN that the person she was texting, was driving. She admitted to knowing so in her deposition. Therefore, she was “electronically present” in the accident, thus causing same!
So please, DON’T “text and drive” and explain to your family, friends and children that not only texting and driving can get you into trouble these days, but texting the person who IS driving can have you in the same hot water!
