A fatal accident in Bend that may have involved texting highlights the dangers of distracted driving. Bend Police say this hazard that may even be worse than drinking and driving. Steve Esselstyn with the Bend Police says they take distracted driving very seriously because they often see the devastating end result in fatal crashes. “Any accident always involves something to do with the driver. The driver has one job and one job only and that is to drive; not changing cd's not munching on a hamburger not looking at a map. But there are too many hazards out there and things happen too fast. But a driver has to do one thing and that's drive, and that's all they gotta do." He even says research shows that texting can actually be worse than drinking and driving, because the brain has to focus on a number of things at the same time.
