Crash At Northern And Grand Avenues May Have Been Due To Distracted Driving

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), an estimated 70,000 crashes each year are either directly caused by or are in some way connected to the use of cellphones while driving. Federal and state safety agencies now estimate that an estimated 14% of all fatal driving crashes involve a distracted driver using a cell phone, smartphone or other electronic devices with even more being seriously injured. When speed is added to the mix along with driver distraction, it can make a crash even worse.

According to a statement issued by the Glendale Police Department, an accident in Glendale last month, leaving one person with life-threatening injuries is believed to involve both distracted driving and speeding. ABC 15 in Phoenix reports that the driver crashed his vehicle on Sunday, August 25th near the intersection of Northern and Grand Avenues.

Glendale Police Department investigators believe that alcohol impairment may also have played a role in the accident. The driver was transported to an area hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries. There were no other vehicles involved in the crash, and no other injuries were reported.

The identity of the driver has not yet been released by authorities. So far, no charges have been filed against the driver.
