      Distracted driving bill stalls in South Carolina Senate

      A Senate bill that would strengthen distracted driving laws has stalled in the state legislature.

      Senate Bill 186, which was filed by Sen. Luke Rankin, R-Myrtle Beach on Jan. 8, would make it a felony when accidents caused by distracted driving result in a fatality.

      According to the bill, motorists could be charged with reckless vehicular homicide when cell phones are a factor and when death occurs within three years of the accident.
