Here’s a stark reminder of the dangers with texting while driving.

Deputies in DeKalb County say 30-year-old Corey Ryckman of Earlville crashed into a utility pole Friday night after taking his eyes of the road to text. The crash happened on a county road outside of Leland.

Ryckman lucked out in that he wasn’t hurt. He was ticketed for improper use of an electronic device.
