On September 22, 2016, Robert Cornish was killed by a distracted teen driver while he was investigating a problem with his trailer on the shoulder of Loop 410. The 32-year-old left behind two young children and his pregnant wife.
His death was a senseless and heartbreaking loss that could have been prevented.
For the first time, the Cornish family will speak out about this unnecessary death and the tragic epidemic of texting while driving.
The family has turned to well-known San Antonio attorney Tom Crosley for help. Together, they will address the media to discuss the need for “Bobby’s Law,” a statewide ban on texting while driving.
“The Cornish family wants justice in the courtroom, but they have a bigger mission,” said attorney Tom Crosley. “They want to ensure that no other family loses a husband, or any other family member, through distracted driving. They want lawmakers across Texas to honor Bobby’s memory with a statewide law banning texting and driving once and for all.”
Representative Tom Craddick will be pre-filing legislation for a statewide ban on texting and driving in Austin on Monday, November 14 as well.
