Distracted Driving Cr.jpg

This Nov. 3, 2011 file photo shows, from left, Brock Raffaele of Cadillac, Mich. and Sault High students Lauren Gee, Conner Langendorf, and Emma Harrington, taking the KDR Challenge and sign the banner as speaker Bonnie Raffaele, right, watches in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich.. Seventeen-year-old Kelsey Raffaele's last words were over a cell phone to a friend: "I'm going to crash!" The car she was driving had clipped a snow bank and spun into oncoming traffic, where it was t-boned by an SUV. She died at a hospital without regaining consciousness. Police chalked the accident up to mistakes made by a novice driver, unaware that she had been on the phone at the time.
