On Wednesday afternoon in Ramona, California, a new teen driver caused an accident that involved three vehicles and one police officer. All those involved in the accident were taken to the hospital with injuries.

The teen driver was on the eastbound side of the State Route 78 in a 2011 Ford Fusion. She then rear-ended a 61-year-old driver in a 2006 Chevrolet HHR who was stopped to make a left turn on Earlham Street.

The station wagon was then pushed into the intersection and hit a Chula Vista police officer who was riding his bike off duty. The officer was airlifted to the hospital after the crash caused him to fall from his bike and roll around the road; and the other two drivers were taken by ambulance to a doctor.

It has been reported that the officer suffered severe trauma and is critical condition. The teenager and the other driver are being treated for moderately serious injuries.

Upon investigation of the accident, law enforcement has found evidence that suggests the young woman was texting right before the collision. Texting while driving is against the law; and when they complete their investigation, she could face charges.

The State Route 78 was closed in an area for a while near Ramona Community Park.

Currently 41 out of 50 states ban texting while driving; and when the action causing accidents and injuries, the penalties become more serious.
