Teenager Convicted of Vehicular Homicide in Precedent Setting Case

A Massachusetts teenager has been convicted of vehicular homicide in a case that has put texting while driving on the front page. In February of 2011 he was driving and hit a truck head on killing the driver of that vehicle.

The teenager had denied texting at the time he was driving but the police analyzed his phone records and found that he had texted a message and received an answer at almost the same minute as when the accident occurred. 38 states and Washington D.C. have made texting while driving illegal in the last few years.

The student had said he was worrying about homework at the time. That brings up the nature of all accidents and how many could be avoided if better attention is being paid at all times.
