One of the most common causes of death in the state of Pennsylvania is attributed to car crashes.

Distraction can lead to a serious car accident injury

In the past several years, news outlets feature daily stories about the dangers of texting and driving.

Using a cell phone while driving is a dangerous habit, though there are other distractions that are just as deadly.

Sadly, one recent wreck in Pennsylvania on Interstate 81 took the lives of two people.
