Carri Fennel
Shelton’s Carri Fennel endured the dire consequences of distracted driving.

Distracted Driving

The Cost of Distraction

In a recent AAA study, two-thirds of Washington drivers claimed that they multi-task well while driving. Carri Fennel begs to differ. Nearly 10 years ago, the Shelton teacher tried to respond to a message on her phone while behind the wheel. She never imagined how that one decision would forever change two families; her own and that of the pedestrian she nearly killed. In the ongoing fight to end distracted driving, Fennel spoke with us about her experience. You can read her full account of that fateful day and its irreversible consequences.
