    ...who realizes this story makes no sense?

    The driver looked down briefly at his phone. But he also hit someone in the rear at 60mph.

    If the driver was really going 60mph towards stopped traffic, it doesn't matter if he looked down or not. He would not have been able to stop.

    It is possible he looked down for longer than the story says. If so, that makes some sense, but still not a lot. He's still going 60 towards stopped traffic. Stopped traffic is easy to see a while away. (We know the accident didn't happen after a curve, because the man who was hit said he saw it coming. If it was around a curve, he would not have seen the truck coming that far away.)

    I think it's more likely the accident was caused because he was high, and not because he was answering a call.
