WTSP: The important message of a drunk driving victim

By Shannon Valladolid

With the Super Bowl only days away, drunk driving victim Robin Powell is sending a powerful message to people.

“I am begging you, please don’t drink and drive,” said Powell.

During a Super Bowl weekend 16 years ago, a drunk driver hit Powell’s car head on. It paralyzed her from the shoulders down.

“After my crash, it took four years to learn to feed myself again, to be able to dress myself. It took me seven years to be able to drive again,” she said.

Now a grandmother, she feels fortunate for the time she has with her family but her disabilities hinder what she can do with them.
