The Bismarck family's message is under way through a multi-faceted safety campaign utilizing television, radio, social media and billboards across the state. In the safety message, Tom and Arlene Deutscher discuss how a tragic crash affected them on July 6, 2012, when their son, Aaron Deutscher, his wife Allison, their 18- month-old daughter Brielle and their unborn baby, were on their way from West Fargo to a family gathering in Bismarck. A drunk driver, traveling the wrong way on Interstate 94, col- lided head-on with their vehicle. Everyone was instantly killed. In the television public service an- nouncement, Tom Deutscher relays how they went from planning a fam- ily reunion to planning a family fu- neral. Arlene Deutscher relays the experience of losing an entire branch of her family tree. Tom Deutscher is originally from Scranton, while Ar- lene Deutscher is a native of Belfield. "With too many tragedies such as this happening in our state, the NDDOT along with the Deutschers have teamed up to launch a new cam- paign to encourage people not to drink and drive," Mark Nelson, NDDOT Safety Division director, said in prepared statement. "In 2012, nearly 52 percent of fatalities could have been prevented if Hey had made the decision not to drive after drink- ing alcohol." Tom and Arlene Deutscher, and the father of Allison Deutscher.

"The Deutschers have made a bold choice to take their tragedy and turn it into an opportunity to save lives," said Nelson. "The overall message we want to get across with the Deutscher campaign is that it's not worth it. Don't drive drunk. It's that simple. just don't do it." Friends of the deceased West Fargo family in recent months have been organizing an awareness cam- palgn now known as Run4Change. On April 6. in an effort to accom- plish a goal of bringing something positive out of the tragedy and to help change society's attitudes about drink- ing ~ind driving, a Run4Change gath- ering at Scheel's Arena.
