ROCHESTER, Minn. - A father in southeastern Minnesota is spreading the message to teenagers about the dangers of distracted driving.
Matt Logan's 17-year-old daughter, Deej, died four years ago. She was composing a text as she drove away from Byron High School on the first day of her senior year when she slammed into the back of a school bus. She died later that day.
The Post-Bulletin reports Logan is appearing in a public service announcement produced by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety. In the PSA, he tells the story of Deej's last text.
Logan spoke at more than 30 schools last school year. But he says the videos offer a broader base for his message.
As of Saturday, Logan's PSA had more than 5,400 views on YouTube.
