Texting and Use of Cell Phones Are Killing People on Our Highways

The federal government has determined that  3,092 people died last year in "distraction-affected" crashes, a newly refined measurement meant to tally the effect of texting, phoning or simply answering a call while driving.

The report did not break down the data by state, but Tennessee has about 2% of the country’s population and therefore it is reasonable to assume that about 60 people in Tennessee died in such accidents.
