Driver On Cell Phone Kills Two Children
If an Orlando couple gets its wish, Florida drivers will be required to use hands-free earpieces when using cell phones in their cars.
Anjelica Velez, 5, and her sister Victoria, 2, were killed by a driver who was talking on a cell phone. The two little girls were crossing the street when a University of Central Florida student sped through a red light and hit them.
The driver of the car has denied being on the phone at the time.
The Velezes have filed a lawsuit against the driver and her father, who owns the Honda SUV involved in the accident. They have also started a petition at the intersection where their daughters were killed, seeking legislation that would prohibit cell phone use while driving.
