JENNINGS COUNTY, Ind. (WDRB) -- Indiana State Police say cell phone use is to blame for a fatal crash on State Road 7.

Authorities say 24-year-old Steven C. Litzy of North Vernon was driving in a 1995 Honda Accord when his car left the road and flipped after hitting a drainage ditch.

Fire rescue crews had to extricate Litzy from the overturned car, and he was pronounced dead at Jennings County Hospital.

State police say Litzy may have been distracted because of using his cell phone.

They say it's a reminder of the deadly consequences of distracted driving.
