Stop Texting and Please Start Driving
This is a video that I (Chris) filmed and edited for Rigby High Schools Student Council, it was a sobering experience for me to see what really happens when the EMT'S, Fire Fighters, and Police are called out to an accident for texting or drinking and driving. Some of these images may be graphic, viewer discretion is advised. Thank you everyone for the feed back on this video. YES it is a fake video the Rigby High School created the idea behind it to bring awareness to teenage drivers. The Fire Fighters and EMT's are real the Ambulance, Paramedics and the Cops are real. They all volunteered their time to help the Rigby High school students show the world the dangers of texting and driving. The procedures that are used in this videos are used every day by fire fighters and EMT's at real senses of real accidents. This video was put together by the students and volunteers to bring awareness and share it with the world. Special thanks to everyone for helping make this video possible. By: Christopher J. Lott

Baby Fights to Survive after Drunk Driving Accident
Those who know little Mason Villegas say he is a fighter. Diagnosed with a respiratory condition at birth, he and his mother Yvette frequently visited Valley Baptist Medical Center for checkups. Now, however, Mason's family is at the same hospital watching their baby fight for his life. "It's a miracle that he's alive right now," said Mason's uncle, Billy Villarreal. "And it would be a miracle if he pulls through." Sunday evening on Wilson road in Harlingen, a drunk driver caused the accident, then fled until police tracked him down and took him to the hospital. Little Mason, however, suffered the worst injuries from the hit and run. "He got the worst of it," said Villarreal. "He got jammed up between the passenger seat, and the whole back seat was just smashed in together, with him in the middle." Mason's mother Yvette and her friend Lyanna Casares were also injured in the wreck. They are expected to fully recover. Mason, though, sustained a fractured skull, a broken nose, and dangerous brain swelling. But the outcome could have been worse. "The good thing was the car seat was strong enough to hold him," said Villarreal. "He was facing toward the windshield. If he was facing the other way, and the guy would have hit them, my nephew wouldn't be here right now." Villarreal says this has opened his family's eyes to the horrors of drunk driving, and how one person's carelessness can cause such damaging consequences. "He had a couple of hours of a good time, but that ended up causing hurt to someone else's family not to mention his own." The name of the suspect has not yet been released, but he will be facing intoxication assault charges. We will also keep you posted on baby Mason's condition.

Jury Awards DUI Victim $9.25 Million in Damages
by Jana Barnello If you were injured by a drunk driver, how much money would you need to make up for it? One local woman was recently awarded millions in a lawsuit, but she says money was not the reason she wanted to take the case to court.A Hamilton County jury awarded 21-year-old Jessica Volz .25 million for damages she suffered when a drunk driver hit her, head-on three years ago. However, she doesn't expect to see a dime, and says she hopes this makes people think twice before drinking and driving.Kevin Davis hit Volz as she drove on Mountain View Road on November 25, 2008. On that day, investigators say Davis drank half a bottle of whiskey and got behind the wheel. He passed out at the wheel and hit Volz."When I got into the ambulance, they actually placed me inside the ambulance with him," said Volz. "I could smell (the alcohol), and I knew."She knew Davis was driving drunk, but Volz didn't know that this wasn't the first time Davis got caught doing it.  He served three years in jail, and during that time, Volz tried to recover. Her most severe injury was a broken foot. She also has scars on her chest and hips from where the seatbelt cut her skin.Volz was a senior at Ooltewah High at the time -  an honor student and cheerleader. With her injuries, she couldn't attend classes like usual so she graduated early. Volz says she missed senior prom while she healed, and other coming of age moments. Plus, she'll never regain full function in her foot."It's always with me. It will always be with me."That's why Volz says she and her family pursued the civil lawsuit against Davis. On Tuesday, a jury awarded her .25 million dollars - the most money ever awarded for a drunk driving case in Tennessee.     Volz told NewsChannel 9 that she doesn't expect Davis to pay her a penny of that money."I never banked on that," said Volz. "It's just to send a message...I'm lucky to be alive. And I want other people to know that getting your car towed because you rode home with a friend is cheaper than taking someone's life."Three and a half years since the accident, Volz is spreading that message to her classmates at UT, where she is a nutrition major, and to whoever will listen. She's made drunk driving awareness a part of her life, and is hoping her record-setting damages will stop at least one person from making Davis' mistake."Your life is a gift. And it's given to you. And you need to cherish it, and think about others as well. Don't be reckless."Volz also has plans to work with MADD - Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Victim in Teen DWI Crash Speaks Out
18-year-old Tyler Poole knows he's a walking miracle.  "Yes, I feel really blessed. Definitely God's hand on that car," said Poole.  God's hand was on a car that's now crumbled and smashed.  You almost can't believe five other teens who were crammed in the Honda with Poole also survived, but with injuries far more severe.  "I mean, I was looking at the speedometer and we were doing every bit of 80," Poole said.  The soft spoken teen told News 13's Mario Boone in an exclusive interview he knew something bad was about to happen.  "My last words I said, 'we're all going to die,' and I closed my eyes."  Poole said in the moments just before the crash he tried to get the 19-year-old driver to slow down.  "I really got worried when we started speeding toward those railroad tracks."So, he and best friend Jeffrey Morrow strapped on their seatbelts. Seconds later the car went airborne.  "Landed, almost hit a car, and swerved.  The car flipped, then I woke up and we were in the ditch."In another exclusive interview with News 13's Boone Tuesday, Taylor Townsend admitted he was drunk at the wheel during the crash and, Poole said he knew it the moment he got in the car. Asked Boone, "why would you get in the car with a driver you knew had been drinking?"  "I don't know. It was a bad decision. I mean, it was everyone's decision to get in that car. I just want Taylor to know that I don't blame him and I'm not mad him," Poole responded. Poole also said he learned a valuable lesson and will never get in the car with a drunk driver again.By: Mario Boone, [email protected]  Follow Mario on Twitter: @mariobooneHear

Delaware County Launches Holiday Campaign to Prevent Drunk Driving
Keep DUI Off Your Holiday List The Pennsylvania DUI Association's 30-foot DUI Victims' Moving Memorial was stationed at the Delaware County Courthouse on Wednesday to raise awareness about the dangers of driving while impaired and to provide a quiet place to remember the victims while sending a message to motorists not to drink and drive during the holiday season. Delaware County Council, the District Attorney, area law enforcement officials and Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) in conjunction with representatives from PennDOT held a press conference at 11 a.m. to announce the County's participation in DUI enforcement through the upcoming holidays. December is one of the highest months for arrests, accidents and deaths involving alcohol or other drugs because of a heightened amount of parties, social gatherings and other holiday celebrations. Delaware County Law enforcement officials will be conducting roving patrols and DUI checkpoints on area roadways. "Good people can make bad decisions - that's often the case when otherwise responsible adults choose to get behind the wheel after drinking," said County Councilman Dave White. "But it only takes a split second - a car braking too quickly or a child chasing a ball into the street - for that bad decision to change a life forever." Delaware County collaborated with Street Smarts and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation to "raise awareness to the Delaware County community about drinking and impaired driving," said Street Smarts Health Educator Lauren Amway. PennDOT and police statewide are joining forces for "Operation Safe Holiday," an initiative including seat-belt, aggressive-driving and impaired-driving enforcement aimed at keeping roadways safe this holiday season. "We have seen some tragic accidents in our county as a result of alcohol. We are seeing a decline in those accidents but still we see too many too often," White said. "When we see tragedy, we as a community need to answer questions, raise awareness, and prevent these tragedies from occurring." District Attorney Jack Whelan commented on the job done by the Pennsylvania DUI Association, PennDOT and police officers around the county to curb the tragic effects of drinking and driving. "The fact that we are educating the public about the dangers of driving under the influence is making a difference. The more we can educate the public, the more the public becomes aware of the danger of drinking and driving," Whelan said. "DUIs happen all year long, but we wanted to kick-off this outreach effort during a time of year when people let their guard down concerning the number of drinks they consume. We want them to have responsible fun, but be mindful of the impact DUIs can have on their lives." The operation is under way, beginning with statewide Click It or Ticket seat-belt enforcement. Through the New Year, police will also use sobriety checkpoints, roving patrols and regular traffic safety patrols to crack down on motorists who are speeding, driving aggressively or driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol. "No one thinks that their holiday celebration will end in tragedy. But for those who include alcohol in their celebrations and then get behind the wheel, this is too often the case," said Linda Sposato, Victim Services Specialist for MADD. "Drunk driving deaths and injuries are 100 percent preventable, so do your part this holiday season by choosing to drive safe and sober and help others do the same." Representatives from MADD distributed red ribbons to encourage people not to drink and drive. Sposato encouraged individuals to tie a MADD red ribbon on their vehicle to show a commitment to driving safe and sober. PennDOT reports that the holiday season continues to be the leading time period for traffic accidents. There were 4,235 accidents and 49 fatalities in 2011 during the Thanksgiving travel period, which includes the weekends before and after the holiday. During the Christmas and New Year travel periods, there were a combined 1,994 accidents and 19 fatalities. These tragedies devastate the lives of tens of thousands of families, friends, neighbors and coworkers. The DUI Moving Memorial trailer is a replica of the permanent DUI Victims' Memorial Park that is located at the Pennsylvania DUI Association's headquarters in Harrisburg. The Moving Memorial is housed in a 30-foot trailer, interior of which is hand painted with a beautiful garden scene. The interior features a 25-foot wall printed with 1,000 names of DUI Victims that have been honored in the Memorial Garden, and is the focal point of the memorial. The interior replicates an outdoor setting in tribute to the original, but stationary, DUI Victims Memorial Garden. This mobile memorial allows those who may not be able to travel to Harrisburg to still view the Memorial Garden.
