A Peoria car wreck caught on tape could have been caused by cell phone use, according to police.
The crash happened at 75th Avenue and Thunderbird Road last Friday when an SUV failed to stop for a red light, and collided with a pick-up truck making a left turn.
The red light enforcement camera at the intersection captured the collision, and in the photo, the driver of the SUV can clearly be seen talking on her cell phone.
Peoria police officials said they want to remind drivers of not only the distractions of cell phones, but of all the distractions while driving and the dangers they cause.
Police have released the following list of other distractions that can lead to collisions:
Text messaging or using other electronic devices such as laptops
Shaving or putting on make-up
Being overly involved in conversations or the radio talk show
Talking to kids in back seat
Singing and "dancing" to the music
