Erica Forney’s story. (don’t text and drive)

admin | March 4, 2011 | 19 Comments

I didnt make this video, it was on the news and I wanted to post it to give awareness..So in driver’s ed we watched a video of texting and driving and the outcomes of it all.. Erica’s story touched me the most. Drunk Driving isn’t the only problem with drivers, texting is.. texting while driving is equivelent to having 4 beers or even worse! Driving while talking on a phone is 4 times greater to get in an accident and texting and driving is 8 times greater to get in an accident. Erica was only 9 years old when she died from a driver who was texting when she hit Erica. Erica was coming home from school that day, Erica was in the bike lane, but the driver didn’t see her and hit Erica at a speed of 25 mph Erica’s bike was mangled. Erica’s mother said she was coming home from a dr’s appointment and was talking to her dad on the phone and said “Dad, I gotta go there are ambulances all around my house, I then knew it was Erica” The sad part is This is 100% preventable, and she was a few peddles away from her home RIP ERICA!! remember never text and drive it isn’t worth risking yours or other people’s lives

    Very sad story. So terrible for her family. We have a PSA on our channel made with teens to help raise awareness about the dangers of texting and driving.

    People don’t know that texting is the world easiest way to get killed. Why text? It could be you or someone you dont even know. Why end their life for something you did?
