CANYON -- Jacy Good, national speaker with the Hang Up and Drive program is sharing her story about distracted driving as part of West Texas A&M Universitys Allyson Ford Project tonight at 6:30 p.m. in Legacy Hall of the Jack B. Kelley Student Center on campus.
WTAMUs PULSE (Peer Educators) is hosting the Allyson Ford Project and lecture to raise awareness about distracted driving and its consequences.
Just hours after graduating from college, Jacy Good and her parents were heading back to Lancaster, Pa., when their car was hit head-on by a tractor trailer. The truck had swerved to avoid a man turning left at a red light. That man was talking on his phone. Goods parents were killed and after hours of surgery, the new college graduate was given only a 10 percent chance of survival. After a long road to recovery, Good began her campaign for a cell phone ban in her home state of Pennsylvania.
