Five Car Accident in Odessa Sends Two to the Hospital

(Rosemary Regina Sobol, Chicago Tribune) Authorities are looking for an apparent drunken driver who crashed a car into a concrete wall and jumped the sidewalk coming to rest outside the front doors of the Tribune Tower this morning, according to police and a doorman. “I just heard a big bang,” said a Tribune Tower doorman, who then spotted the older model beige-colored Lexus travel off the road and up onto the sidewalk, stopping in front of the historic building at 435 N. Michigan Avenue. After the 4:30 a.m. crash, the driver got out and went inside the lobby briefly, assuring staffers he wasn’t hurt, the doorman said. He grabbed his keys and walked away northbound after telling the doorman he didn’t want to see the police because he “was drunk.” “I said, ‘Dude, are you sure youre OK?’ ” the doorman said. The driver, who appeared to be in his 30s, said he was. The doorman saw him once more, walking southbound on Michigan Avenue. The Lexus was northbound on the east side of Michigan when its passenger side front end slammed into the corner of a concrete wall surrounding stairs leading to lower Michigan Avenue, leaving one corner of the wall crumbled. Shattered glass and pieces of the cars front end scattered about. Once on the sidewalk, it traveled in an arc, narrowly missing a fire hydrant, two trash receptacles, and the Tribune building itself before coming to rest, with its airbags deployed.

Car crashes into house at Creggan Hill

The National Safety Council’s annual injury and fatality report , “Injury Facts,” found that the use of cellphones causes 26% of the nation’s car accidents, a modest increase from the previous year. The 2014 edition of the report compares data from 2013 and earlier. Only 5% of cellphone-related crashes occur because the driver is texting. The majority of the accidents involve drivers distracted while talking on handheld or hands-free cellphones. The NSC report, combined with Texas A&M research institute’s “Voice-to-Text Driver Distraction Study,” warns drivers that talking can be more dangerous than texting while operating a vehicle, and the use of talk-to-text applications is not a solution. For most phone-related tasks, Texas A&M’s survey said manual texting took slightly less time than the voice-to-text method. Regardless, driver performance was almost equally affected during both tasks. In early 2013, the nation’s four biggest cellphone companies launched their first joint advertising campaign against texting while driving. Verizon Wireless, Sprint and T-Mobile united behind AT&T’s “It Can Wait” advertising campaign, warning their customers against the misuse of their own devices. However, hands-free cellphone use has become a driving force in cellphone-related distractions of those behind the wheel.
