The man driving the other vehicle was ejected from the driver's seat and died at the scene.

Man causes fatal car crash while talking on a cellphone

A 65-year-old Wisconsin man is awaiting trial where he will face charges of second-degree reckless homicide and negligent homicide. The man is accused of causing the death of a 37-year-old woman while driving on a wet road.After a police investigation, authorities have stated that the 65-year-old man was driving behind a truck pulling a trailer on a wet road. While stuck behind the truck, the man then attempted to pass it; he momentarily lost control of the vehicle and then collided head-on with an oncoming car driven by the 37-year-old woman, killing her in the accident.

Distracted driving blamed for deadly Wisconsin crash

Distracted driving is a "deadly epidemic," according to the U.S. Department of Transportation, which has an entire website devoted to the problem and is in the middle of a national campaign designed to bring attention to the issue, which occurs not just among teens or inexperienced drivers, but can affect anyone. Just ask the father of a 17-year-old who was killed in a car accident on interstate 94 east of Hudson, Wisconsin, last week. Two other 17-year-old boys were also killed in the crash, which was blamed on distracted driving.
