Pedestrian Killed While Searching for Cell Phone
We've all been guilty of absent-mindedly leaving our keys or cell phones in odd places. The tragedy of this accident is that it so obviously could happen to any of us at any time. Our thoughts go out to the victim's family and loved ones. This is most certainly a tragic time for them.
No matter how quickly you think you'll be, avoid crouching, kneeling, or even walking along busy highways. With drivers traveling at high speeds, it is difficult for them to slow down in time to avoid hitting people in the roadway. A cell phone or other personal item may seem like it is worth the risk at the time, but your safety should never be compromised.
