Drunk Driver Strikes Two Pedestrians While Texting

Texting and DrivingTwenty-eight states, including North Carolina, have made it illegal to text while driving, yet some drivers are still doing it, sometimes with devastating consequences.

Early on the morning of May 30, Jedadiah Allen Woodcock struck 2 North Carolina pedestrians in Wrightsville Beach. Wtinesses observed Woodcock speeding in the direction of the pedestrians, strike them, and then flee the scene.

Investigating police officers found Woodcock’s cell phone on the floor of the car with a partially written text message appearing on the screen, as well as marijuana and rolling papers. Investigators say that Woodcock blew .09 in a breathalyzer test.

In addition to violating the no texting law, Allen was also charged with driving while impaired, possession of up to ½ ounce of marijuana, and two counts of aggravated felony with serious injury by vehicle. If convicted, it will be his second DWI conviction in less than a year.
