Serious Injury Due to a Distracted Driver?

Changes in Oregon law make it illegal to use a cellphone with your hands while driving. This includes texting and driving. Far too many accidents are caused each year because a person was focused on sending a text rather than operating his or her vehicle. Sometimes, these accidents are even fatal.
