Distracted Driving Update – Construction Sign

AutoInformed.comAn 18-year-old Rhode Island man was driving on I-495 in Wrentham, Massachusetts  recently when he hit a highway sign warning of impending construction, says Boston.com. The sign then proceeded to trash the windshield of his Toyota Corolla, hitting him in his obviously brain-less head.

According to state police, an initial investigation into the incident found the driver wasn’t paying attention to traffic stopped ahead of him due to a construction project lane closure. When the man from Tiverton, Rhode Island, tried to stop, he lost control and veered off the road, striking a construction sign warning about the lane closure, according to police. He went to Rhode Island Hospital with a head laceration. In a statement, police reminded drivers to pay attention.
