Daydreaming could be worse than texting and driving

Posted: Updated:

Don't get lost in thought while driving. A new study says daydreaming while driving causes more traffic deaths than texting while driving.

The Erie Insurance Group says distracted drivers are five times more likely to be involved in a fatal crash than those who use their cell phone.

The group says 62 percent of distracted drivers are lost in thought and fail to respond quickly enough.
