Colchester woman injured by texting driver to share story at UVM

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) A Colchester woman severely injured by a teen texting and driving is sharing her story at UVM Wednesday.

Organizers say Debbie Drewniak was seriously hurt in 2011 after being hit. Years later, she says it's still hard for her to walk and speak, but she's dedicated to make sure this doesn't happen to anyone else.

Drivers will be at the Larner College of Medicine at UVM for the program starting at 6 p.m. A distracted driving simulation will also be running for young drivers to get them to put down the phone.
