to distract: to prevent (someone) from giving full attention to something.Source

So, can I say "I was distracted by a distracting sexy girl", "I was distracted by a distracting car", & "I am a distracted person because I suffered attention disorder"

so, Is it ok to say "a distracting person / thing" & "a distracted person"?


Yes, these are both OK, classic adjectival uses of participles. If something distracts you it is distracting and you are distracted.
