A man talking on his cell phone caused a crash in Huntersville on Monday morning that sent another vehicle crashing into the side of a House. According to authorities, the crash happened around 10:30 a.m. along the 6700 block of Gilead Road.
The 41-year-old driver was talking on a cell phone when he ran off the road and crashed into a parked car in the driveway of the roadside home.
The impact of the crash sent the parked car into a supportive pillar of the home carport. The crash did not cause any major structural damage.
The driver suffered significant damage to the front-end of his car. He was charged with failure to reduce speed.
With today’s fast-paced lifestyles and the many distractions that follow, it’s not always so easy to remember to something as mundane as obeying the speed limit. However, speeding does cost lives and as the speed of a car increases, the chances of being in a potentially fatal crash increase exponentially. In fact, a person that is driving 35 miles per hour is two times more likely to kill someone than if they were going 30 miles per hour or less.
