Phone ‘ping’ turns into Camry prang

NewsMail - - NEWS -

A CHI­NESE na­tional smashed into the rear of a parked car when her mo­bile phone went ‘ping’ while she drove.

She dropped the phone, but when at­tempt­ing to pick it up, drove into the rear of the car.

Miss Jen-Pei Hsu, a farm worker, pleaded guilty in Bund­aberg Mag­is­trates Court to driv­ing with­out due care and at­ten­tion on Barolin St at 5.50am on July 16.

Prose­cu­tor, Snr Const Con­sta­ble Tina Bland said Hsu was driv­ing a Camry which col­lided with an­other Camry.

“She says she was driv­ing to col­lect a friend for work when she heard her phone ping,” Snr Const said.

“And as she went to pick it up she knocked it onto the floor and leant down to col­lect her phone and she states she took her eyes off the road for a few sec­onds.”

Hsu was con­victed and fined $1000.
