Meet Our Spring 2019 Winner
In 2005, my mother dropped my sister and I off at school and traveled her regular route to work. Only two miles from our school, my mother was hit by a car directly into her door panel, totalling her car. Thankfully, my mom was not badly injured, but as a five year old child, I was greatly impacted by the event. The thought that I could lose my mother to a car accident became a reality. The investigation discovered that the man who hit my mother’s car had recently undergone back surgery and was on a narcotic pain medication, which affected his reflexes and ability to drive safely.
