Video: Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Do Paperwork And Drive A Semi At The Same Time

This clip, which was sent to us by a reader, shows how distracted driving (even on an empty road) can lead to disastrous results. A truck driver who was traveling on a clear road in perfect weather thought it would be okay to glance at a stack of papers on his lap. As he’s reading and shuffling through the papers, the truck veers off the road and strikes a highway barrier. The impact causes the driver to lose control and crash into a several trees before overturning. The video was uploaded by YouTuber Burk Boyce. The exact time of the crash, or extent of the drivers injuries, were not revealed.Hopefully, watching this will make you think twice before glancing at your phone (or reading a stack of papers) while driving.
