VALLEY VIEW, OH (WOIO) -

Investigators are requesting the phone records of a woman they say plowed into four motorcycles at a red light.

She admitted it happened as she was looking down at her phone. Police have launched an investigation to see if that driver had been texting.    

It happened earlier this month in Valley View, at the intersection of Canal Road and Fosdick Road. 

There were seven people on those bikes, and all of them were hurt. One was even seriously hurt, with a fractured skull, bleeding on the brain, and more.  

Valley View police found no evidence the driver of the car tried to brake or avoid the motorcycles. Records also show that driver admitted looking to looking down at her phone.
 
Now detectives are having that phone analyzed for any record of texting. She could now face felony charges.
