Driver watching porn on phone plows into, kills woman

The driver was distracted for an estimated 19 seconds, and hit 20-year-old and her fiance, who were broken down on the shoulder of the road in England

Mirror.com

STAFFORD, England — A lorry driver ploughed into a car and killed a 20-year-old woman while watching PORN on his phone.

Ian Glover had been flicking through images of women on explicit dating sites when he ploughed into a car that had pulled over into the hard shoulder. The crash caused a Vauxhall carrying Laura Thomas and her fiance, Lewis Pagett, both 20, to fly over the safety barrier.

Despite the work of emergency crews at the scene, Laura - who wanted to become a teacher for disabled children - died on the way to hospital.

Travis Owenby Travis Owenby Wednesday, June 04, 2014 8:55:36 AM I don't believe it was necessary to release this information to the public. Sure he shouldn't have been doing it to begin with but this has publicly embarrassed him and is somewhat an invasion of his privacy.
No Tomorrow No Tomorrow Wednesday, June 04, 2014 10:17:13 AM Travis he killed someone . That girl had way more than her privacy invaded. You are not very clever are you?
Sumpter Joshua Sumpter Joshua Wednesday, June 04, 2014 10:55:40 AM You seriously give a shit about this guy being embarrassed and his invasion of privacy after he killed a 20 year old girl? Are you retarded?

Scot StClair Scot StClair Wednesday, June 04, 2014 5:20:01 PM Plows? Really? The headline has the word "porn" in it, and you find it appropriate to say he "plowed into" the woman? Phrasing, mother. Phrasing.

Mel Carter Mel Carter Friday, June 06, 2014 1:26:17 PM Does it really matter what he was watching? We're missing the point here, he was distracted because he was using his phone whilst driving. Would it be an lesser a tragedy if he had been watching sport?
