A man that caused a fatal accident while texting, was sentenced to three years in jail. The driver rear-ended another car and killed a baby in Kitsap County.

The man from Bremerton, 37, acknowledged that he would be found guilty of vehicular homicide of the infant.

The prosecutor said that he was texting, which caused the fatal accident. It did not even appear that he attempted to brake before hitting the other vehicle.

Davis Law Group is deeply saddened to hear that such a young life was taken by a man who was behaving so negligently. We send our condolences to the family.

Distracted Driving Statistics

The federal government estimated that by 2007 11 percent of drivers were talking on their phones at any given time. Harvard University researchers have estimated that drivers using cell phones are causing more than 2,500 or more fatal crashes a year and more than 500,000 injury accidents annually. In 2008, distracted driving motor vehicle accidents killed nearly 6,000 Americans.
