Texas Man Dies While Texting [VIDEO]

A Texas man died this weekend after becoming distracted by his cell phone and running off of the interstate, slamming into a parked 18-wheeler.

Texas authorities say that the truck did have the required “road triangles” in place as per state law.  A 42 year old driver of a Honda Accord, who witnesses say was texting, left the roadway, struck the road triangles and then the semi truck.  The driver of the 18-wheeler was sleeping in the cab of his truck, and received minor injuries.

Interstate 45 was closed for hours while authorities investigated.

This video of the aftermath of the accident and interview with authorities shows how distracted driving can be detrimental.
