Trucker watching porn moments before deadly crash

A truck who hit and killed a highway worker was watching porn on his phone moments before the crash.

Tate Doom is accused of watching 14 X-rated clips on the PornHub website before killing Vernon Hedquist while he was working on the road in Minnesota, USA.

Doom’s truck smashed into the back of a pickup causing its trailer to spin into Hedquist.

Police seized Doom’s phone at the scene and it has been reported that he had deleted 14 video files from the adult site. Police discovered that Doom was watching those clips between 1.40pm and 2.07pm. The fatal crash happened 90 seconds later.

Doom has denied using his phone at the time of the accident and claims he was travelling at 50mph. However, police argue that he was travelling at 72mph.

Doom also hit Hedquist’s colleague Thomas Wood, who was injured but survived.
