Concord Car Accident Involves Texting Driver
A Concord car accident involving two vehicles and a texting driver causes one vehicle to spin off the road. The incident took place at approximately 7:15 PM on Tuesday evening, November 9, 2010, along Interstate 93 just north of Exit 16.
According to reports, an off-duty state police sergeant witnessed a car slamming into a second vehicle causing it to spin out of control into a breakdown lane. The driver has been identified as Joseph Cummings, 23, of Laconia, who was seen texting when the car accident occurred.
The off-duty state police sergeant pulled up to Mr. Cummings’ Toyota Camry and began to dial state police when Mr. Cummings, who was driving erratically, slammed into a GMC Envoy. The driver of the second vehicle has been identified at Debra Vetrano, 44, of Gilford.
Fortunately, there were no injuries immediately reported.
“My belief is that texting was a major contributing factor in the crash,” said state police Trooper Andrew Player.
The Concord auto accident is still under investigation by local authorities. Mr. Cummings has been charged with texting while driving and reckless driving.
We hope that no one was seriously injured in the crash and extend our thoughts and best wishes to everyone that has been affected by it.
