Distracted driving can claim lives
Last September, a head-on crash resulted in the death of 77-year-old Lucille Vogt of Parkers Prairie.
Kayla Carry of Browerville, the 18-year-old driver who reportedly crossed the centerline and hit Vogt's vehicle head-on, is now facing 10 years in prison for vehicular homicide.
The tragic part of it, according to the Minnesota State Patrol, is that it could have been avoided. After investigating the crash, it says distracted driving is to blame.
