On February 23, 2010, 19-year-old Heather Lerch was killed when she lost control of her car and crashed through a guardrail on her way home from work. She was speeding and texting at the time of the crash.
To honor their daughter's memory, Dan and Wendy Lerch produced this video with the Washington State Department of Licensing and submitted it for inclusion in the U.S. Department of Transportation's "Faces of Distracted Driving" series.
