Maria Tiberi was the 21 year-old daughter of WBNS sports anchor Dan Tiberi, who was killed on Sept. 17, 2013, in a distracted driving accident. Since then, the Tiberis and the WBNS family have been on a mission to teach young drivers about the dangers of distracted driving.
This mission includes public service announcements, Maria’s Message presentations at area high schools, and free defensive driving courses for teens. To date, Dom has delivered Maria’s Message to more than 100 area high schools and over 70,000 students in Central Ohio, all to put an end to distracted driving.
All proceeds benefit the Maria Tiberi Foundation and will be used to start driving simulator schools to teach young people how to become safer drivers.
