Has no one heard of “pulling off the road”?
Investigators believe 18-year-old Brittany Gonzalez, of Seffner, Fla., dropped her cell phone while driving southbound on I-75 about 40 miles south of Tampa around 1:40 a.m. Tuesday. When Gonzalez reached to pick her phone up, she drove her Ford Expedition into the shoulder and then over-corrected, causing the SUV to flip several times before ending up facing east in the middle lane, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
A two more vehicles, a Suburban, then a truck, hit her. The driver of the Suburban died.
