Distracted driving kills

Monday morning, July 25, shortly before 7 a.m., my wife and I were walking eastbound on West Main Street near the entrance to the Apple Berry Farm on our way to the bike path. We were walking facing traffic in the designated bike/pedestrian lane to see oncoming traffic. As a black SUV approached us they drifted toward our position. They were on the white line that separates the bike/pedestrian lane from the driven portion when they finally looked up and corrected their vehicle. I’m certain they were looking at their phone or dash display instead of watching the road. Their actions put my wife and I in a potentially deadly situation. When you are behind the wheel of any vehicle, focus on your responsibilities of driving before you hurt or kill someone.
