I was driving a rental car on an expressway that got totalled in an accident. Guy ahead of a truck in the right lane was steering with his forearms while playing a video game with his thumbs. He unknowingly tapped either the gas or brake pedal and thereby turned the cruise control off. The car decelerated quickly and the truck swerved to avoid hitting him but knocked me into a ditch and caused the car I was driving to flip. Dude was not a kid but I guess late 30s or early 40s.
Cell phone laws have been stiffened here after a young girl took out a grad student in Central Illinois. She was driving and downloading ringtones and ran over him in a bike lane.
