The Le’Nyce and LeeAnthony Fisher Foundation is committed to its mission of providing support and resources to grieving families and loved ones who have experienced a significant loss due to traffic fatalities.
It is estimated that 42,915 people died in car crashes in 2021; and the families impacted, understand just how precious and unpredictable life can be. As such, the foundation provides counseling and financial support. We also work to raise public awareness of best driving practices, through driver education/training, and legislative proposals.
It can feel impossible to pick up the pieces in the wake of unimaginable tragedy, but the Le’Nyce and LeeAnthony Fisher Foundation is here to make available support to those who need it, offer a compassionate shoulder for people to lean on and share their stories, process their grief, and find ways to continue to live out the legacy of their loved ones.
To provide support for Families Affected By Vehicular Fatalities.
The Le’Nyce and LeeAnthony Fisher Foundation is committed to providing support and resources for families who have suffered the loss of a child in the Pflugerville, Round Rock, Hutto and Austin metroplex. We are currently able to offer financial assistance, grief counseling (Individual and Group), and family retreats.
As we build our foundation, we look forward to impacting negative trends by sharing impacts and providing resources to promote awareness of safe driving practices and the importance of them. We want to review impact studies, as they relate to speed and locations, so that we can better partner with local authorities to improve on roadway safety.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reported that traffic incidents are the leading causes of teen death in the US. In 2020, approximately 2800 teens (aged 13-19), about 8 a day, lost their lives due to vehicle accidents. The rate of fatal crashes are 3 times higher, per mile driven, for drivers aged 16-19 as compared to drivers over 20.
In a publication by NHTSA in June 2022 “Traffic Safety Facts – Young Drivers”, the 2020 data showed that Texas was one of the states that reported high in the area of young driver crashes and fatalities. Texas reported 3874 fatalities involving young drivers. The breakdown goes to report that number of those fatalities being caused by Young Drivers – 207 , Passengers in Young Drivers’ Vehicles – 114, Occupants of Other Vehicles – 166 and from non occupants – 71.
Leading contributors of these alarming statistics: Driver inexperience, young drivers with young passengers, nighttime or poor road conditions, distracted driving, improper or lack of use of safety equipment like seatbelts, driving while tired or impaired, and reckless driving.
