Hundreds gather in Tyler for MADD event

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Wednesday was a big day for the Tyler chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Hundreds gathered for MADD East Texas' "Tie One on for Safety" program.

Keynote speaker, Kathy Richards-Hernandez lost her daughter Casey in a drunk driving accident in 2007. She now travels with Dani Simien, the man Casey hit and paralyzed, telling their story, trying to stop the next tragedy.

Richards expressed, "It's something that really needs to be heard  If I can just get one person to hear the story that Dani and I share in hopes of saving a life, then a mom won't have to live with such a tragedy, a tragedy."
