GREAT HANG UP: Cost of distracted driving fender benders | News
SACRAMENTO, CA - Even a minor-looking fender bender can be costly following a distracted driving accident.
Natomas Auto Body & Paint says business is brisk from fender benders and one factor may be more distracted driving accidents and tighter parking spots.
Tyler Williamson said just fixing one panel alone can be upward of $500 and on average, most repairs cost over $2,000.
Williamson says even if damage doesn't look bad on the outside, there could be hidden structural damage in a crash over 5 mph that adds up.
