The accident happened just before 2 p.m. in the 1100 block of Highway 12. Officers say a man driving a silver pickup was side-swiped by red pickup that was heading the same direction. The woman driving the other vehicle had reached down to get her phone and her truck crossed slightly into the other lane, striking the silver pickup.
