SHATTERED IN A SPLIT SECOND
By Vanessa Richardson Bagby
In August of 2005, 25-year old Atiba Bagby was riding his motorcycle on the outskirts of New York City when he was struck by a distracted driver.
Shattered in a split second is how the author, Atiba’s mother, describes her life the moment she received the devastating, late night phone call that her unconscious son was being airlifted to a trauma center.
Both a cautionary tale and a love letter to her child, Vanessa Bagby has written a heartfelt memoir about what happens to an entire family in the aftermath of a tragedy.
