Details of the Corpus Christi Accident

Around 3 pm, a driver of a silver Toyota’s attention was diverted away from traffic up ahead and instead focused on a sub sandwich.

Being preoccupied with the sandwich was costly as the driver rear ended a blue car in front of him, forcing it off of Highway 77.

The driver of the Toyota as well as the two people in the blue car was hospitalized with serious injuries.

Corpus Christi police will issue a ticket to the driver of the silver car.
