Apple Sued After iPhone Driver Using FaceTime Caused Fatal Accident
Apple is being used by two parents whose daughter was killed in a car accident for not implementing limitations on its iPhones when being used behind the wheel.
Specifically, James and Bethany Modisette are blaming Apple for not restricting the use of iPhones when driving, claiming that this is one of the reasons a 20-year-old driver crashed their car on December 24, 2014 and killed their little girl.
In lawsuit documents that were published by AI, the parents explain that they were driving their car on the highway but slowed down because of the traffic, when another driver smashed into their vehicle because he was in the middle of a FaceTime call on his iPhone. The driver didn’t see the car in front braking, and the violent collision led to the death of the couple’s 5-year-old girl.
