Fatal Accident Involves a Boy Text Messaging

The Polk County Sheriff's Office says Christopher Cepeda was
with three friends preparing to cross a road last night in
Davenport, southwest of Orlando.

His friends saw the 1994 Buick approaching and stopped.

But Christopher was looking down at his cell phone and walked in front
of the car. He died Monday afternoon at an Orlando hospital.

The sheriff's office says the woman driving the car likely won't
be charged.
