He stated he got distracted by his younger brother because he was telling him to put his seat belt on. He stated when he looked back to the roadway, it was too late to stop, and he couldn’t avoid hitting vehicle 2 as it had stopped and was attempting to make a left turn into the parking lot of Fareway. . . . I spoke to him and explained because he was trying to make sure his younger brother was wearing his seat belt I was not going to cite him. I told him it was very important to pay attention to the other traffic around him while he is driving. I also spoke to his younger brother about the importance of putting on his seat belt as soon as he gets into the vehicle.”
