Woman has Both Hands on Her Cellphone and Not on Steering Wheel Causing Deadly Rollover

RIVER FALLS, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin authorities say a Minnesota woman had both hands on her cellphone and apparently none on her steering when she lost control of her car and sent the vehicle behind her into a deadly rollover.

The St. Croix County Sheriff's Office says Friday's crash near River Falls killed 16-year-old Kyra Faith Hayes, of Beldenville.

Capt. Jeff Klatt says it appears a 21-year-old from Big Lake, Minnesota, didn't have either hand on the wheel and wasn't steering before her car veered into Hayes' lane.
