A northern Ohio man, who died after a crash on Interstate 75, was texting while driving, according to Toledo police. Ken Harder, age 51, died from injuries suffered in the violent crash that occurred on March 3rd. Mr. Harder was critically injured when his SUV crashed into a parked Ohio Department of Transportation maintenance truck whose workers were picking up litter on the side of I-75 north in Toledo. The truck was parked off the roadway. During their investigation, the police determined Mr. Harder was texting while driving. A state worker who was hit by a side mirror was taken to a hospital, but was not seriously injured. The unoccupied state truck was pushed 35 to 40 feet by the impact. This tragic event is a prime example of why drivers should never text while driving a vehicle.
