How sad that these people try to avoid technology but yet it ultimately finds them. It is just another reason why laws should be strictor on devices.

Wonder if those folks, sue people? If these people do then the car driver is going to lose his a.s.s., and some bunch of othere stuff forsure.
Folks please just drive the damn car, and leave the othere crap alone.

People never learn no matter how many accidents they read about where people were killed because of a driver who was distracted by talking on a cell phone, texting, MP3, or even kids. If you think you need to use any of these items or your kids are needing your attention just pull off the road. I still see several drivers using cell phones while driving on the highways and interstates even with the new law in place. People also need to SLOW DOWN and drive with some sense.

For this driver, I too see prison in store of him for vehicular manslaughter. My prayers go out to the family of the buggy driver.

I have questions im 16 years old how can a iowa state patrol man tell if the driver of the car was on his mp3 player? And if it hit the amish buggy was hit from behind how did the amish see it? Thanks.

So another opinion...People have to realize that even if you pull off on the side of the road to use a cell phone or take care of kids you can still get hit. And ive seen alot of amish riding round town and they drive in the middle of the road so weather you pay attention on the road or not you still hit other people. Ya may have been on the mp3 player but were was the buggy? probably in the middle of the road like the rest. sorry im just very opinionated.
