Distracted and reckless drivers endanger the lives of all those around them. Distracted and/or impaired drivers account for thousands of car accidents every day across the United States.
A recent crash near Brandywine injured three teenagers and left one driver facing serious charges. The accident happened in front of the Concord Mall on Concord Pike during the afternoon hours. According to reports, the driver of a truck ran a red light at the entrance to the Concord Mall and hit a car that was pulling out on to the roadway.

Reportedly, the driver of the truck was not injured, but was suspected of impairment. Police placed the driver under arrested and charged her with driving under the influence of drugs and two counts of first degree vehicular assault, among other charges.
