FRUITLAND-- The Langdon family of Fruitland knows all too well how heartbreaking losing a teenager is.

That's because it happened to them.

Seventeen-year-old Nick Langdon was killed in a rollover accident in December of 2009. He was a passenger in a car whose driver crashed while driving too fast on a dangerous road.

Langdon was partially ejected, and died.

Three years later, Nick's sister Caitlin is doing what she can to make sure teenagers get the message about safe driving. She's teamed-up with her mom Cindy to talk to students at Fruitland High about the effects of dangerous driving on her family.

Caitlin says no matter how painful it is, she will keep speaking to keep Nick's memory alive.
