Teenager killed in suspected drunk driving accident

A 22-year-old Missouri woman is facing drug possession, vehicular assault and drunk driving charges after an automobile accident in Jefferson County on the afternoon of Jan. 20 left her 19-year-old passenger dead. A Missouri Highway Patrol report says that the woman was also seriously injured in the crash, and she was transported, along with the driver of the other vehicle involved, to a local hospital for treatment. The accident took place on Highway 30 near House Springs at approximately 2:15 p.m.

NHTSA asks for distracted driving cellphone features

A study released in 2013 by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration revealed that in 2011, more than 600,000 drivers around the country were looking at their cellphone screens instead of watching the road at any given moment during daylight hours. The number of distracted drivers has likely since grown even higher, and the NHTSA has called on smartphone manufacturers to incorporate features that would severely restrict how Missouri motorists are able to use their products while behind the wheel.
