In October we were here when AT&T and the Ohio Public Safety announced that Van Wert High School Junior, Kylee Bagley was one of the winners for the "It Can Wait" challenge about distracted driving. 

She worked with crews from the Ohio Channel to come up with this 30 second video.The video describes a conversation between two people about how texting while driving is like gambling with your life.

Bagley hopes the video will encourage other people to put their phone away while driving.

"I just want the people my age to see that I'm not the only one who cares and that there's several people, your family, your friends, they all care about you and that they can see the impact it will do if you text and drive," says Van Wert High School Junior, Kylee Bagley. 

Bagley's mission has already impacted people she knows, like her principal, Bob Priest. 

"I can speak for myself, I honestly have texted while driving. It was a pretty powerful statement, it was simple enough to where I stopped," says Priest. 

Priest says the video will be shown to students and staff a couple times a week.
