Now that school is in session it is very important to communicate to incoming freshmen and even returning students the dangers of driving even after one drink.
Hit by a Drunk Driver at over 100 mph and Alive to Tell
Karen Mertes, a Lieutenant Colonel in our United States Air Force, was driving the speed limit on the interstate when she was struck by a drunk driver traveling over 100 mph. He had a blood-alcohol level of nearly three times the legal limit. Both vehicles were totaled. Her axle snapped in half, with brakes and steering inoperative. Karen made a futile attempt to regain control of her vehicle as her car slid sideways down the interstate. Other cars still remaining in the bordering lanes traveling by her at highway speeds. During these split seconds, as her life hung in the balance, Karen made a bargain and promised that if she were fortunate to survive, she would spend the rest of her life helping others. This was the genesis for what has become Fulfill Your Destiny, Inc. www.fulfillyourdestiny.org
