Albuquerque police are using a recent car crash to set an example about the dangers of using your cell phone while driving.

Officers responded to a vehicle crash on Montgomery just west of Wyoming Saturday.

Police say the driver of a red SUV was on his cell phone while trying to make a U-turn and hit a silver BMW. The collision caused the red vehicle to rollover.

The driver of the red SUV and the female passenger both had to crawl out of the vehicle. No one was seriously hurt, but both cars had to be towed.
