Video Description: On June 30, 2014, Chris Weber picked up his cell phone while driving in Rock County to make a bank transaction. His choice led to the crash that killed Andrea Boeve, a mother of two who was bicycling with her young daughters in Rock County at the time. This video, Shattered Dreams: Distracted Driving Changes Lives, sends a powerful message about the lives destroyed by distracted driving and includes interviews with Andrea’s husband Matt and Chris Weber.
