The Cadillac spun counterclockwise and into a ditch on the west side of the road, and the Volkswagen spun clockwise into the northbound lane before stopping facing north.

2014 efforts to curb distracted driving in Texas

Statistics from the Texas Department of Transportation reveal that distracted driving causes thousands of accidents every year in the state. In 2012, more than 90,000 crashes involved a diver being distracted. One of the common devices cited in these accidents is the cell phone. Polling revealed a seeming contradiction in 2012 with nearly 85 percent of drivers reporting that talking on a mobile phone while driving was dangerous even as half of respondents admitted to using it while driving. A study by the Texas Transportation Institute later found that 10 percent of drivers are talking on cell phones while driving at any point during the day.
