NASHVILLE, Tenn.--FOX 17 Nashville traffic reporter Samantha "Traffic Jam Sam" Russell is urging drivers not to drink and drive, sharing her own personal experience after being struck head-on by a drunk driver.

Russell was struck head-on on New Year's morning in 2016. Russell says while she doesn't remember much about the wreck but it changed her forever. Russell says she thinks about the crash on Rosa Parks every day.

In addition to helping Tennesseans navigate the roads every morning, Russell hopes sharing her experience will help others to stop, think, and don't drink and drive.
