In court today, Silby testified
that she was reaching for her cell
phone as she drove up Seminole Drive
that morning.

*CG locator Madison Heights Prosecutors say reaching for the January 14 phone caused Silby to take her eyes off
the road, and that's when she hit Rose.


Silby says she tried to do the
right thing by calling police when she
realized she may have hit Rose.


A judge ruled that taking your
eyes off the road does not constitute
reckless driving.


He chose an *improper* driving
conviction with a fine of 500 dollars.

(END SOT) for a new law.


Peggy Saunders/Mother of Deputy
Jason Saunders: "My husband and I refer
to it as Jason's law, because I feel
like his death had a big impact on this
being passed."


Jason Saunders died in April of
2007.


The Campbell County deputy
crashed his patrol car chasing a woman
on the run.


(DISSOLVE TO BOARD HERE)


Starting Tuesday, if you cause a
death running from law enforcement -
you'll face a class 4 felony, with a
punishment of up to 10 years in prison
and 100-thousand dollar fine.


(DISSOLVE OUT OF BOARD HERE)


A small comfort to Saunders.


"No amount of years could bring
back my son, or replace his life, but
it's a start."


Campbell County Sheriff Terry
Gaddy says the law will make it easier
for prosecutors to convict those who
run from the law.


"They had a difficult time
proving the individual, the violator,
caused the death."


A fact that troubled Saunders
when Heather Bush, the woman her son
was chasing, went on trial.


"We worried at first that she
wouldn't get anything, that she would
just get off. But thankfully she did
get seven years."


Saunders says the rules and the
punishment are now clear - and she
hopes the new law will prevent future
deaths, by making criminals think
twice.


"I pray we don't lose another
officer and a mother doesn't lose a
son. But it will happen. And the law
might mean a lot one day."


It already means a lot to her.

to look into a crystal ball but auto
dealerships are predicting that as long
as gas is four bucks a gallon, sales
will remain dismal.

VO-NAT Annual auto sales which hit 17


million in 2005, slowed to 16.1 million
last year... and are expected to skid
another 10% this year.


The double digit loss is
something the car industry hasn't seen

Gannassi has ceased operations on

Franchitti who is in his first
year driving on the Sprint Cup Series
had qualified for just 10 of the 17
races this season, Dario was on the
shelf for a while as well with a broken
ankle.


Franchitti's best finish in those
10 races was a 22nd at Martinsville,


He made the switch to Nascar
after being very successful in the open
wheel ranks. In 2-thousand 7 he won
the Indy Racing league's Championship,
that year included wins at Richmond and
the Indianapolis 5-hundred.


With Franchitti's team out, that
leaves Sabates-Gannassi Racing with 2
Teams in the Cup Series, Juan Pablo
