ABINGDON, Va. — Chris Skinner’s life changed forever on June 10, 2000.

It was a hot summer night, and Skinner was in the passenger side of a car, leaving a wedding reception and riding to another party just two miles down the road. Beers popped open as Skinner and his friends listened to “Crash Into Me” by the Dave Matthews Band. Skinner took his seat belt off to stick his head out the window.

On the very last turn before getting to the house, the driver was going 55 mph, even though there was a yellow caution sign that said 35 mph.
