A sobering reminder

Tartan’s SADD group held a mock car crash assembly for juniors and seniors May 8. The Alex Balluff family shared their story of Alex being hit by a drunken driver and having to relearn nearly everything. Injured back on Halloween 2009, Alex has a message, “Never drink and drive or Alex will haunt you inside” and of hope with “Alex’s Hope Blog.”

Alex Balluff, as well as his mother Debbie, spoke about the impact a hit-and-run intoxicated driver had on Alex; the traumatic brain injury he sustained, and his need for 24-hour care for the rest of his life. Alex shared his rap song and hope for eliminating deaths or injuries related to impaired or distracted driving. (Linda Baumeister/Review)
