Salt River police officer killed in Loop 101 crash by person texting while driving

 A Salt River Police Department officer was killed in a crash on the Loop 101 Tuesday.

According to Arizona Department of Public Safety, the officer stopped a vehicle on the Loop 101 around 6 p.m. While out standing with that vehicle, the officer was hit by a passing vehicle, which then hit the vehicle the officer had stopped.

The driver who killed the officer admitted to authorities that he was texting while driving, according to a release Wednesday morning.

DPS says the officer, later identified as Clayton Townsend, was taken to a nearby hospital and pronounced dead shortly after 6:30 p.m.

That is very sad for the family. Scientists should invent a way for phones to stop working next to a steering wheel.
My last two accidents were from drivers talking on their phones while I was at a red light. Couldn't prove it, though.
One was an RN returning from visiting her daughter in a hospital.
