On July 25, 2009, 19-year-old Eric Okerblom was killed when his bike was struck by a truck traveling at 60 miles per hour. Cell phone records indicate that the driver was texting just prior to the collision.

Since their son's death, Bob and Eilene Okerblom have become advocates against distracted driving, supporting the STANDUP Act, FocusDriven, No Phone Zone, Impact Teen Drivers, and other local efforts.
