FORT MYERS - The Fort Myers Police Department has released dash-cam video of a crash earlier this month caused by texting and driving. 

On January 4 an officer observed a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am swerving and slowing for no apparent reason. 

The officer continued to observe the car as it drove west on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard when it suddenly swerved. 

The car drove onto the curb where it struck a guardrail, bus stop sign and tree before rolling over.  

According to police, the 23-year-old driver admitted to texting and taking his eyes off the roadway.
