Man runs into cop while texting and driving
A Virginia man has done a thorough job of illustrating the many things someone with a suspended license should never do.
Such as drive, for example. And also, text while driving. And of course, strike a police officer while texting and driving.
Jalopnik reports that a 25-year-old man was allegedly texting last weekend when the black Ford he was driving swerved off the road and struck a police officer who had someone pulled over for a traffic stop. The man also struck the car that the police officer had pulled over.
The police officer was injured, although her injuries were not life-threatening.
The driver pulled over further down the road and police arrested him.
Alexander Bacon of Herndon, Va., was charged with texting while driving, reckless driving, driving on a suspended license (3rd Offense) and failure to proceed with caution past emergency vehicle with flashing lights.
He is being held on bail and has a court date set for September 9.
