Big Rig Driver Distracted by Donuts Overturns Truck in Fayetteville, NC

Authorities reported that donuts distracted the driver of an empty 18-wheeler regstered to Aex PTO and Trailer Inc. when he overturned his big rig in Fayetteville, North Carolina (NC), according to the WWAY3.

Police cited the driver, from Linden, NC, for driving left of center, and the trucker required treatment at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center for injuries.

Many crashes involve some type of driver error or distraction. This means drivers can impact road safety by paying attention to traffic, reducing speed, and staying awake. Eating, playing with pets, or doing things in the car while on the road, may take away focus from the traffic. Taking the eyes off the road for a second can result in serious injuries or death any moment.
