Man Checking Text Message Causes Three-Vehicle Crash
A man driving a green F-150 caused a three-car pile up on Main St. this afternoon, when he looked down to check a text message on his cell phone as he approached the intersection of Main and Pulliam St.
An investigating officer for the San Angelo Police Department said that the driver had been traveling south on Main St. in the inside lane when he looked down at his phone. At that point, he rear-ended a silver PT Cruiser, which knocked it into a blue Nissan Sentra.
Minor injuries were reported as a result of the crash, however no one was transported to the hospital, the officer said. All of the drivers were wearing seatbelts.
The driver of the F-150, estimated to be in his teens or early 20s, was cited for failure to control speed.
