My dad always taught me when roads are slick, assume oncoming traffic may come right at you. That has saved me more than once. A Midwestern mom showed quick thinking in a similar situation that likely saved her family's lives and that of the other driver, too.

His mother remembers him as a boy who loved life so much he didn't like to pause to eat or sleep. Sadly, Robin Keller's family learned that tragedy from mistakes behind the wheel don't just happen to other people. This is the story of Darrin Edward Cale who died on August 9, 2001.
