Woman with Child in Car Crashes into Police Vehicle While Texting

A woman in downtown Victoria rear-ended a cop car while texting.

The cop, and the police dog in the vehicle, were unharmed. The woman—who had a child in her car—were sent to the hopsital with minor injuries.

When police recovered her cellphone they saw a text message that read: “I just got into an accident, OMG. I was trying to txt u. Ran into a cop car. OMGGG.”

The driver was fined for using an electronic device while driving, according to The Province.

Texting while driving continues to threaten innocent lives as provinces such as Ontario and Alberta try to address the issue.
