A couple who each lost a leg after a driver crashed his truck into their motorbike is suing the man’s girlfriend for texting him while he was behind the wheel.

David and Linda Kubert, both 59, were in Mine Hill, New Jersey when they saw Kyle Best, then 18, looking down at a text message as he swerved towards them.

After the September crash, police discovered he had exchanged 62 texts with his girlfriend that day, and he admitted he had been looking at his phone moments before he lost control of the car.

The driver Best pleaded guilty to three motor vehicle violations, including using a handheld device while driving.

The couple are now also suing his girlfriend Shannon Colonna for texting him while he was driving.
