New Jersey Woman Who Texted Found Not Liable for Friend’s Crash

A woman who texted her boyfriend as he drove isn’t liable for his car crash that injured a couple riding on a motorcycle, a state judge in New Jersey ruled.

State Superior Court Judge David Rand yesterday dismissed claims against Shannon Colonna, who had argued that her texting played no role in the crash that injured David and Linda Kubert. The Kuberts sued Colonna and her boyfriend, Kyle Best, blaming her texting in part for his crash on Sept. 21, 2009.
