Moped driver texting before crash?

A fatal moped accident occurred Sunday night, and police believe that the driver was text messaging minutes before the crash. Douglas Flores, 41, was killed when his moped crashed into a telephone pole. Flores’ vehicle was seen driving off of the road before the crash at around 9:00 p.m. Sunday.

Witnesses also told deputies that he may have been trying to text message while driving the scooter.

The sheriff’s office said that the investigation may include looking at Flores’ cell phone records at the time of the accident.

Right now, the sheriff’s department has not been able to locate his cell phone at the scene of the crash.

I imagine that cellphone traveled a pretty fair distance before landing. The telephone pole didn’t move at all.

Oh, one TV report said he wasn’t wearing a helmet, either.
