Distracted Driving Blamed for Increased Crashes in Kansas

KSAL StaffNovember 29, 2017

Distracted driving and speeding are being blamed for an increase in the number of crashes on Kansas roads.

More than 400 people have died in Kansas crashes this year and the Kansas Highway Patrol says about 25-percent of the accidents are due to cell phone use.

Wichita police have given out more than 100 texting while driving citations so far this year, which is up from 24 in 2016.
