“BREMERTON, Wash. — Kitsap County investigators believe texting and driving led to a crash that killed a 6-month-old boy.
Little Enzo Williams sat in the back seat of his family’s car which was stopped at a red light near Bremerton. And now, state troopers say the man accused of smashing his SUV into the back of the Williams’ family car admits to texting on his cell phone right before the impact.
Troopers say Sydney Wright typed-away as he approached the Williams’ car. At first, they say he denied being on his cell phone, but then investigators told him they’d subpoena his records.
“And it was at that time that he admitted he was sending a text,” said Trooper Krista Hedstrom.
While Wright is charged, he’s not behind bars and no arrest warrant has been issued. Prosecutors wouldn’t say why.
Enzo’s mom, dad and brother and sister walked away from the crash without injuries. Enzo sat closest to the impact and suffered a fractured skull and a bruised windpipe. A couple of days laster, he passed away.”
