Photo detail

Vinnie Sorce’s fiancee, Stacey Stubbs (shown in the picture with Becca Sorce, their daughter), was killed in a 2007 accident caused by a young woman police determined was text messaging behind the wheel. Sorce, shown at his Chino Valley home, said he’d like Arizona to add a law against using cell phones behind the wheel. With national momentum building, two state lawmakers plan to introduce a bill in the 2010 session that would ban text messaging while driving.

Supporters hope momentum elsewhere leads to state law against text messaging while driving

Vinnie Sorce knew something was wrong when he saw a police officer pull into his driveway. He immediately sent his three children, two boys from a previous marriage and a little girl with his fiancee, to their rooms so he could talk to the officer outside.
