When last we spoke, I alluded to a few things that might or might not be happening that I might or might not be able to discuss. Clear as mud, right?
I can tell you that I am working with FocusDriven, an organization dedicated to saving lives and preventing injuries and deaths caused distracted driving, by eliminating cell phone use while driving. The officer who hit my daughters was on his phone with his girlfriend, emailing on his on-board computer and using his car radio seconds before slamming into their car at 126 mph. Suffice it to say this cause is close to my heart.
I am also still working with Pursuit Safety, an organized dedicated to changing law enforcement policies by imposing speed limits on officers involved in pursuit, and clearly defining situations in which pursuit is necessary. They have added Jessica and Kelli's pictures and story to their marketing and promotional materials.
Finally, I can tell you that we will be going to trial on March 22, 2010 for the criminal charges. He is charged with two counts of reckless homicide and two counts of aggravated reckless driving.
We will be hoping, praying and fighting for the justice and closure we have been waiting on for two years, two months and 13 days (and counting).
