Girl’s Death Leads to Drowsy Driving Awareness

June 22nd, 2010 by flanews

An eight-year old girl’s death in Florida has changed state law and serves as a warning to drowsy drivers. RonShay Dugan was killed in Tallahassee when the school bus she was riding in was hit by a drowsy driver in a cement truck. Today in Tallahassee, RonShay’s family stood beside representative Alan Williams, who helped pass the RonShay Dugan Act to increase awareness of the dangers of driving while sleepy. RonShay’s mother, Cavetta Corbett, says it’s too late for her daughter, but she hopes others can be saved.

“It will definitely make a difference in other people’s lives and hopefully prevent this from happening to others; good kids, adults, or whatever,” said Corbett.

The RonShay Dugan Act designates the first week of September as Drowsy Driving Week.
