Driver texting with BlackBerry causes six car pileup

  • A man tapping messages on his BlackBerry phone caused a six car pileup on Interstate 5 on Tuesday morning. The Mercer Island, Washington resident was driving in the express lanes in his minivan when he rear-ended a car. That crash careened into four other vehicles which included a passenger bus.

    A mother and son were in the rear-ended car and went to the hospital, but thankfully no one else was seriously injured in the accident.

    Apparently the driver didn't notice that traffic had come to a stop because he was using his BlackBerry and admitted that fact to state troopers. The driver was cited for following to closely.
