    Texting, talking NY trucker hits car, pool

    Police: Texting, talking NY trucker hits car, pool




    Fri Jul 31, 9:02 AM EDT- AP


    Police say a western New York tow truck driver was texting on one cell phone while talking on another when he slammed into a car and crashed into a swimming pool.


    Niagara County sheriff's deputies say 25-year-old Nicholas Sparks of Burt admitted he was texting and talking when his flatbed truck hit the car Wednesday morning in Lockport, which is outside Buffalo.


    The truck then crashed through a fence and sideswiped a house before rolling into an in-ground pool.


    Police say the 68-year-old woman driving the car suffered head injuries and was in good condition. Her 8-year-old niece suffered minor injuries.


    Sparks was charged with reckless driving, talking on a cell phone and following too closely. It couldn't be determined Thursday whether he has a lawyer.

    All he needs is to have been drunk for the trifecta.
