Truck Driver Distracted By Phone Kills Mum And Three Kids
(Caution: Contains very distressing footage and images)
Tomasz Kroker has been jailed today for 10 years for causing the deaths of Tracy Houghton, her two sons Josh and Ethan, and her stepdaughter Aimee Goldsmith.
It all happened on the A34 in Berkshire.
The remarkable video - sure to move anyone who watches it - features the parents of the three kids and emotional footage of them before the accident. That gives way to footage from inside Kroker's cab, showing him flicking through his phone as he selected music while driving on the motorway.
The clip has been released by Thames Valley Police in a bid to alert drivers to the danger posed by using mobile phones while driving.
The family's car was shunted underneath the back of a heavy goods vehicle and crushed to a third of its size. They were making their way home from a camping holiday in Devon and were killed instantly.
Kroker, from Andover in Hampshire, had pleaded guilty to four counts of causing death by dangerous driving and one count of causing serious injury by dangerous driving at Reading Crown Court on 10 October.
The court heard the 30-year-old was so distracted by his phone he barely looked at the road for almost a kilometre.
Sentencing Kroker, Judge Maura McGowan told him his attention to the road was so poor, he "might as well have had his eyes closed".
