New Canaan H.S. holding distracted driving forum

New Canaan High School is holding a distracted driving forum tonight.

The purpose of the forum is to raise awareness of the dangers of using cell phones while driving.

This comes in the wake of the 16-year-old New Canaan girl now facing negligent homicide charges after police say she drove into and killed a jogger in Norwalk, while using her cell phone.

Despite her age, she is being charged as an adult.
