A Tribute to Danielle

Former Eight Forty-Eight intern Danielle Baker died early Tuesday morning after her car was rear-ended on the Eisenhower Expressway. Police believe alcohol was a factor. We remember her with selections of her work. Then, we hear from a traffic safety expert about the costs and consequences of driving under the influence and the story of a young girl who almost died because of a drunk driver.
