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.

Help Puerto Rico

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
