On September 15, 2016, as the Scherer family waited at the tail end of a traffic jam on I-75 near Brooksville, Florida, another driver—so distracted by his phone that he failed to see the brake lights for nearly 1/3 mile—slammed into the back of their SUV at more than 100 mph. 9-year-old Logan was killed instantly, while the rest of the family was rushed to a Tampa hospital with critical injuries. Investigators later discovered the driver had been so absorbed in his phone that he never looked up, applied his own brakes, or attempted to swerve to avoid the impact.
Since then, Brooke, Jordan, and Mallory have worked hard to survive the grief of their crushing loss. It was through this tragedy that they established the Living for Logan Foundation, a federally registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization on a quest to honor Logan—and all others lost through this deadly epidemic—while fighting for justice and eliminating distracted driving through education, legislation, and changing the hearts, minds, and habits of drivers everywhere.
