Squeeeeee y’all are getting more of me than you bargain for today. I am guest posting today at Jessica O’Neal’s blog where I share my Love List. Be sure to visit her and check it out! I can’t wait to hear what you’d put on your Love List!
Now, to today’s post. On April 16, 2011, Anthony McColl (Tony) was driving friends home from a party when a Mazda Protegé crossed the median line and struck his car, killing McColl and seriously injuring his four female passengers.
According to police, they had been chasing the driver of the Mazda Protegé after seeing the driver driving erratically but had broke off the pursuit because it was becoming too dangerous.
The driver continued to speed and a few minutes later lost control of his vehicle and struck McColl. The driver of the other car, Brandon Crawford, 20, was also killed in the crash.
This video was made in tribute to Anthony McColl and it moved me to tears. His family and friends have created a website and a Facebook group called “Tony’s Promise” where people join and pledge to never drive and drive or let another person get behind the wheel while under the influence in Tony`s honor. Love it!
Tony….I promise! ♥
Will you take the pledge and join me in making an “I promise” in Tony’s honor?
Two years ago, my beautiful mother-in-law’s life was cut tragically short by an impaired driver. In honor of Donna Jean Kennie, please don’t drink and drive. Impaired driving is 100% preventable. Think about it.
