(FABIUS TOWNSHIP) – A Three Rivers man crashed his vehicle because he was looking for his cell phone.
St. Joseph County Sheriff's Deputies were sent to the Three Rivers Health Emergency Room just after 11:30 Friday night to make contact with 36 year old Justin Montgomery.
He told deputies he was heading east on Dudd Road through the second curves when he dropped his cell phone and was trying to find it. Montgomery says he missed the curve and his pick up went off the road, crashing into some trees. He was taken to the hospital by family members.
Officers went to the crash scene and found Montgomery's pick up 30 yards east of Dudd Road and a half a mile south of Corey Lake Road.
Montgomery was ticketed for driving without due care and caution.
