AT&T launches #itcanwait campaign to combat distracted driving

As part of their effort to combat distracted driving, AT&T has released a short video focusing on the story of Fletcher Cleaves.

Fletcher graduated from Cordova High School in Memphis, TN in 2009 with a football scholarship and a promising career ahead of him. However, shortly after graduating, Fletcher was involved in a serious car accident where a distracted driver ran him off the road. As a result of the accident, Fletcher was paralyzed from the chest down, and is still undergoing rehabilitative therapy due to his injuries.1

You can learn more about Fletcher’s story by watching the powerful video below. You can also visit AT&T’s website, www.itcanwait.com, to learn more about their campaign to prevent more accidents like Fletcher’s.

Accidents victims like Fletcher have to deal the the consequences of the poor decisions of others for the rest of their lives. In Fletcher’s case, he lost the use of his legs and lower body, he lost his football scholarship and both his parents lost their jobs in order to care for him.
