Text messaging while driving is such a major distraction that the Alabama State Legislature passed a bill banning texting while driving in an attempt to curb its growth in our state and the potential for injury or death , says Alabama liability attorney Keith T. Belt .
A Leeds woman died in a weekend crash in Trussville, Susan Diane Campbell, 59, was killed in the Saturday accident, said Jefferson County Deputy Coroner Phillip Russell.
The crash happened just before 5 p.m. in the 7500 block of Roper Road. Campbell, driving a 2008 Toyota Yaris, was traveling north on Roper Road when authorities say another motorist driving southbound crossed over into her lane and struck her head on. The impact of the collision tore of the driver’s side of Campbell’s car and she was pronounced dead on the scene.
Police said the person who struck Campbell was possibly texting when the accident happened, Russell said. Further information on the other driver was not available.
