He was not arrested? Wow, he or she must be an illegal immigrant. Only the illegal immigrants have more rights than the legal resident or citizen of this country. or the driver may be related to the police dept guy or a city council member. mmm..Who else it can be?

@jupiterk, [Portion removed due to disrespectful comment or offensive language] people get in accidents every day and dont get arrested, this was a bad accident....thats it. if drugs or alcohol are factors then they are arrested, if he or she was on a cell phone they are ticketed. and as for your illegal immigrant comment let me ask you....[Portion removed due to disrespectful comment or offensive language] ? the united states has deported almost 500,000 immigrants this year- [Portion removed due to disrespectful comment or offensive language]

Seriously??? They get a ticket if they were on their cellphone when they either ran over a child or plowed into another car??? And what - you think those [Portion removed, terms of use] actually ADMIT to being on a cellphone while driving, thereby turning their vehicle into an uncontrolled 3,000 lb. weapon that is travelling at a high enough speed to kill anyone it hits??? THAT type of mindset runs rampant among the 20-30 year olds. The 1st ticket for driving while on a hand-held cellphone OUGHT to run about $1,000.00 and should NOT be allowed to be dismissed by taking one of those silly [Portion removed]online courses. 2nd ticket = lose your license (NO EXCEPTIONS) for a year. THAT should seriously reduce WRECKS (they are NOT accidents if they're caused by some selfish [Portion removed] talking on a cellphone while driving) in the future.

Where does it say the driver was on his cellphone? It's not like car accidents never occured before the invention of the cell phone.

This is why I drive an American pickup truck instead of a Japanese econobox.
