Hingham police say it’s a warning against distracted driving.
They’re blaming texting for a weekend car crash.
The driver, 28-year-old Amanda Barron of Cohasset, admits she was looking at a text message on her phone…when she drifted off the road, across a driveway, hitting a tree.
Barron walked away with only minor injuries.
She was cited for lane violations and for texting while driving.
Under state law, reading a text is considered the same as sending one while driving, which is illegal.
