Chad Lowery, an Orange County paramedic, is lucky to be alive. Apparently, he was working a motorcycle accident crash scene when a passing driver lost control of her vehicle and hit him. She has admitted that she was distracted by her cell phone. Lowery has suffered serious injuries to his cervical spine and can’t lift his 8-month old daughter. We wish nothing but the best for Firefighter Lowery and his family.
Distracted driving is a disturbing trend. The Florida Legislature need to do something about this frequent cause of automobile accidents before more tragic stories like this one occur.
