An 18 wheeler was traveling east bound on Interstate 10 near mile marker six. The truck went off the road to the right and struck an unoccupied, parked vehicle, causing the truck to overturn and then catch on fire. The driver suffered minor injuries. Jason Gazzo is a highway patrol officer and says the incident was caused because of distracted driving. Gazzo says, “The vehicle that the 18 wheeler struck was unoccupied, thankfully, and the driver had minimal injuries. Talking with the driver, he said he was reaching down to get a pair of glasses. We just started our Pay Attention or Pay a Fine campaign, focusing on distracted driving. This wreckage shows the effects of distracted driving.” The accident had traffic at a standstill on the interstate for over five hours.
