Each year, some 200 people die on Montana roads. Thousands more lives are shattered by severe injuries and grief.
More than 70 percent of these deaths and injuries involved people not wearing a seatbelt or of driving while intoxicated. Which means this pain and heartbreak could have been prevented ... and that gives us hope that by driving safely, we as a state might reach zero deaths.
To help us understand the stories behind life or death on the road, we've recorded five survivors who tell the sometimes harrowing details of their crash, the pain of loss, the relief of survival, the surprise of having walked away ... the lives shattered and saved based on the choices made on the road.
Listen to their stories. Let's work toward zero deaths on Montana roads ... starting right now.
