Man Killed in Motorcycle Accident - Result of Texting
A 43-year-old man was killed while riding his motorcycle on I-65 yesterday.
The man, Brandon R. McCain, was not wearing a helmet, and was texting on his cell phone and drove into the median. When he tried to get back onto the interstate, he overcorrected. We do not know yet if there were any other vehicles involved in the accident.
The crash occurred about six miles south of the Indiana 28 exit, between mile markers 150 and 155. The interstate traffic was at a standstill for nearly an hour and a half after the accident as a helicopter landed to airlift McCain to St. Vincent’s Hospital. McCain was transported, but sustained injuries severe enough that he later died at the hospital.
Texting & Driving
There are around 330,000 injuries each year that are the direct result of texting and driving. And it seems that with all the awareness and information about the dangers, the problem still isn’t going anywhere.
Our thoughts are with the family of Mr. McCain, and we hope that his accident will serve as a lesson to so many others who are still engaging in the extremely dangerous activity of cell phone use behind the wheel.
Put down the phones.
