Montgomery Police Capt. Tom Didone has made it his mission to help high school seniors get through May and June without tragedy. Part of what motivates him: He lost a teenager to a crash.
May 23, 2012"It only takes a second to take a life," Montgomery County Police Capt. Tom Didone tells high school students. His son Ryan died in 2008. He was a passenger in a car of teens going to a Burger King after a Christian youth group meeting when the driver, traveling at a high rate of speed, lost control on a winding road in Damascus and hit a tree.Tracy A.
