WATCH: Driver playing with phone crashes into another truck

Driver crashes while on the phone

Motorists are always cautioned not to use cellphones while driving and last week, Daily Sun ran a story about cellphone usage causing many deaths and accidents on our roads.

A perfect example of what can happen is the video of the truck driver using his phone behind the wheel. In the dashcam video, the driver can be seen fiddling with his phone, not paying attention to his surroundings.

By the time he looks at the road, he realizes there’s a truck hauling two trailers and with the speed, he’s driving at, he can’t bring his truck to a stop fast enough and crashes into the other truck. According to the dashcam date, it happened on Saturday and the truck was driving at 73 km/h.
