View the video of the Camaro I was in by clicking here:




The first crash video shown is where a Cadillac Escalade SUV ran a red light and struck me on my door, totaling both my Camaro and the Escalade and seriously damaging  2 other vehicles my car was thrown into.  The jaws were used to cut me out of what was left of the Camaro.  The second crash occurred first; a van with two people who were drinking ran a stop sign and hit me square on my door, breaking my pelvic bone in three spots.  That is in my video and after it (page down to see all) are the other media mentioned at the top of this page.

To follow are six crashes caught on dash cams.  If you are traveling on the freeway in a lane near the shoulder and a cop has someone pulled over, the law in most states now specifies that you need to reduce your speed to nearly half the normal speed (check your local state laws).  Unless you move over to the next lane (if possible) from the lane the officer is in, in which case you don't have to reduce your speed (again, check your states laws).  Because of idiot drunks and those that are unaware of the law, it is dangerous to slow down to half the posted speed on the freeway because you could be rear ended yourself, so the best advice is to move over a lane where you are not required to slow down.  I spoke to an officer once and he said the flashing lights are almost like a magnet for drunks - they tend to drive right at them.  Last night in Dallas a fire truck with its lights on was rear ended by a drunk.  The fire engine was there to protect the officers working a wreck.  Within 15 minutes another drunk rear ended that drunk at the same site.  It is unbelievable.  In Dallas now any accidents on the freeway require that a Dallas Fire Department Ladder truck park before the wreck to block the road.  Anyhow, here are 5 videos of those that did not slow down or change lanes and instead flew into the back of officers with vehicles pulled over on the freeway. 

NOTE: For larger video (sometimes) right click on any video window, left click on Zoom and then select "Full Screen" or "200%" to see larger version of the video or to view video full screen.  Having trouble with this so may or may not work.

Please Don't Drink And Drive! For your own sake and everyone else's

 Learn about Jacqui, the young lady featured at the end of my car wreck video:

Severely disfigured in a drunken driving crash four years ago, Jacqui is courageously lending her story and her face to a statewide anti-DWI campaign in Texas in hopes that her experience will deter people from drinking and driving. She is featured in television public service announcements, an educational video and print materials produced by the Texas Department of Transportation and the Austin Police Department. "Before and After" campaign materials can ordered from the Help Jacqui Fund.

Jacqui's photo before the crash
Early on Sunday morning September 19, 1999, Jacqui - then 20 years old - and four friends were on their way home from a birthday party. Reggie Stephey, an 18-year-old high school student, was on his way home from drinking beer with some buddies. On a dark road on the outskirts of Austin, Texas, Reggie's SUV veered into the Oldsmobile carrying Jacqui and the others. Two passengers in the car were killed at the scene and two were rescued.
Jacqui's photo after the crash

Within minutes, the car caught fire. Jacqui was pinned in the front seat on the passenger side. She was burned over 60% of her body; no one thought she could survive. But Jacqui lived. Her hands were so badly burned that all of her fingers had to be amputated. She lost her hair, her ears, her nose, her left eyelid and much of her vision. She has had more than 50 operations since the crash and has many more to go.

In June 2001 Reggie Stephey was convicted of two counts of intoxication manslaughter for the deaths of Jacqui's two friends. He was sentenced to seven years in prison and fined $20,000.

Jacqui's ordeal and her story in pictures are featured in an extensive account prepared by the Austin American Statesman and Jacqui's Story, a powerful PowerPoint presentation. See and hear what Jacqui and Reggie have to say about the incident that changed both of their lives.

Medical treatment for Jacqui's extensive injuries continues. She and her father, who has been by her side since the crash occurred, now live in Louisville, Kentucky where specialists are working with Jacqui to restore all her vision and the use of her hands. Thanks to surgeons who rebuilt the eyelid that she lost in the fire and the cornea transplant in 2003, Jacqui is now able to see out of her left eye.

In 2003 Jacqui completed her studies in intensive English and she is now able to speak and write in English. When she can, Jacqui continues to tell her story through news interviews and speak out against drunk driving.

Bring Jacqui into your school or college! 

Jacqui suffered massive injuries as a result of this accident and has had multiple, multiple operations.  Visit her site to learn more and to find out how to deliver her story to your classmates and faculty.   Her life story and what happened will impact all those that hear it.  Shift-click the following link:
