New York Truck Driver Watching Porn Kills Mother, Appalls Personal Injury Lawyers Such As David Perecman
Date:2/9/2010

A truck driver was watching pornographic movies on his laptop computer when his rig hit a disabled car and killed the driver.

New York, NY (PRWEB) February 9, 2010 -- A truck driver killed a mother of two while he was watching pornographic movies on his laptop computer, according to New York state police. His truck crashed into her disabled car on the New York State Thruway. The accident happened last month near Buffalo, New York. Personal injury lawyers, including David Perecman, are appalled at the recklessness of the truck driver.

The rig driver, 45-year-old Thomas Wallace was arrested Tuesday, charged with second-degree manslaughter. Thirty-three-year-old Julie Stratton was the victim.

Police established that Wallace was distracted by a pornographic movie after they tested the laptop found in the truck.

The New York Daily News also reports that Wallace had slept for no more than four hours over a 27-hour period before the accident, violating federal trucking rules for commercial drivers to be on the road.

Stratton's car was disabled at the time of the crash because she hit a deer. She had called 911 and was waiting for help to arrive.

"What this truck driver was doing was dangerous and, even worse, 100% preventable," said New York personal injury lawyer Perecman. "Driving a truck is a tremendous responsibility and truckers and trucking corporations need to take safety seriously.

A study by Virginia Tech's Transportation Institute found that texting truck drivers are 23 times more likely to be involved in a crash or near miss. Last week, the federal government enacted regulations that prohibit truck and bus drivers from texting with any cell phone or other handheld device that distracts a driver's attention from the road. New York personal injury lawyers at the Perecman Firm vigorously supported these regulations.

"Preventing road accidents relies heavily on drivers using their own good judgment and common sense : then you hear of something like this and wonder just how many regulations need to be passed," added Perecman.
