Unusual Stories

(WTNH) — Another new study finds walking while texting is more dangerous than walking while talking on the phone or listening to music.

Researchers looked at 14 studies on pedestrian accidents. Results showed that people staring at their phones sometimes forgot to look up before cross in the street.

Texters have more ‘near-misses’, too.

About 270,000 pedestrians die worldwide each year while crossing the street.
