Book Discussion: "The Long Blink"

Featured Audio

A deadly crash on the Ohio Turnpike, forever altered the life path of a Baltimore man.  In the blink of an eye, the crash killed his wife and left his two sons critically injured.  A truck driver hauling a triple-trailer told troopers he had dozed off and was unable to stop before slamming into the family's car.   We will discuss the story of the crash and its aftermath, detailed in a new book called "The Long Blink: The True Story of Trauma, Forgiveness, and One Man's Fight for Safer Roads."     Then, as the five year anniversary of Tamir Rice's death approaches--artists find inspiration in his story.  

Guests: 

Brian Kuebler, Investigative Reporter, Author, "The Long Blink: The True Story of Trauma, Forgiveness, and One Man's Fight for Safer Roads" 
Ed Slattery, Wife Died in Crash with Truck, Truck Safety Advocate
Kevin Kleps, Assistant Editor, Sports Business Reporter, Crain's Cleveland Business
