Faces of Distracted Driving: Margay Schee, 13

 

On September 23, 2008, 13-year-old Margay Schee was riding home from school when a semi-truck slammed into the back of her school bus. She was killed when rescuers were unable to get her out of the burning wreckage. The truck driver was talking on his cell phone at the time of crash and said he never saw the bus.

Margay's mother, Elissa Schee, is a founding board member of FocusDriven, the first national nonprofit organization devoted specifically to raising awareness about the dangers of distracted driving.

Unfortunately most people don't realize the dangers of distracted driving. Most people overestimate their ability to concentrate on doing something else while driving.
