A Bend woman who survived a crash from texting while driving wants to send a message to everyone about the danger of what she did.

 

Vicki O'Halleran, 21, says she was going about 40 miles an hour and ran off the road; hitting a fence and tree and other objects while texting.  Luckily, she was not seriously hurt.

 

She also loves to run, and this was how she wanted to make a statement: by running from Portland to Klamath Falls spreading the message about the dangers of texting while driving.  "Not everybody is going to be as lucky as I was. And so I kind of feel that it is my responsibility to kind of give back for my luck that I had. And help others not make the same mistake that I did."

 

O'Halloran joins the “TXT L8R” movement started by our news partner, News Channel 21, and vows to gather donations to the campaign. 

 

O'Halloran will be running through Bend this Friday; she plans to have "run the state" by August 31st.
