Tyler’s crash may have been preventable had there been education regarding the dangers of drowsy driving. This was never a topic that we discussed as parents with Tyler. We discussed drinking and driving, texting and driving, even loud music and other distractions, but we had never even thought about driving drowsy. We will never know if learning about drowsy driving would have prevented the crash and saved his life but I am inclined to believe it just may have.
Our family is now on a mission to raise awareness and education to prevent the loss of others. If we can save just one life, one family from losing a child or loved one to drowsy driving then my son did not die in vain. We can make a difference with your help – please share our story, invite TYREDD to present, and learn how to prevent drowsy driving crashes. No one should ever have to experience this profound loss. We will forever have a hole in our hearts and in our family where our son will forever be missed. It is our sincere wish that you may never experience this pain.
In honor of the memory of our son we will never stop educating and raising awareness to this serious but preventable issue.
