Distracted Driving Leads to Injury Collision

On April 25, 2018, at 12:22 a.m., officers responded to a major traffic collision in the 3700 block of 190th Street.  The preliminary investigation revealed the driver of a gray Toyota sedan was travelling eastbound on 190th Street while texting on a cellular phone. The driver of the sedan ultimately rear-ended an 18-wheeler tanker truck.  
The driver of the sedan was transported to a local hospital with moderate injuries; no additional injuries were reported. 
The Torrance Police Department is grateful this collision did not result in any fatalities and continues to warn the community about the dangers of distracted driving. 

The Torrance Police Department remains committed to enhancing safe driving through education, visibility and enforcement in an effort to decrease traffic collisions and save lives.  The Torrance Police Department is also grateful to partner with our community in this endeavor. “Drive Like Your Life Depends on It.”
