Leslie and David were out for a walk when their lives would be forever changed in an instant by a distracted driver. On March 4, 2013 a driver began texting on her phone while driving and ran into another car, pushing that car directly into David and Leslie. David was killed instantly and Leslie sustained severe injuries.
In the video below, Leslie describes how she fractured her neck and received 5,000 stitches and staples in her skull. You’ll also meet Fred, the innocent driver who was helpless to prevent his car from hitting Leslie and David because of the driver behind him.
Note: There are graphic images of Leslie’s injuries between :46 and :52.
Leslie is expected to make a full recovery, but her family never will be the same because of one person’s choice to text and drive. PLEASE TURN OFF YOUR PHONES WHILE DRIVING!
