One Man's Story Of Texting While Driving

MTV is featuring the story of Reggie Shaw, who was 19 years old when he driving his truck and sent a text to his girlfriend. His truck crossed the road’s center line, hitting an oncoming car. The two men inside were killed.

Shaw’s story is being told in a series currently running on MTV called “ One Bad Choice.” We are re-airing a conversation between Reggie and Here & Now’s Robin Young six years after his accident about his work to change Utah’s laws on texting and driving.
