On Saturday, March 31, 2018, Karena and her son were driving to lunch when they were rear-ended by a driver who was texting and driving and rolled past a stop sign. The collision pushed Karena’s car into a curb, causing it to roll over twice and slide about 50 feet down the street – ultimately leaving the vehicle upside down and trapping the two in the car.

Karena, who always keeps her phone in her purse in the backseat as to not be tempted to use it while driving, was unable to reach it and alert her husband and 911. Life360, however, immediately sensed the crash and simultaneously called 911 to dispatch an ambulance and alerted her husband with directions  to his family’s exact location. Life360 also notified the other members in Karena’s circle including her in-laws in Portland, Oregon, with whom she is very close.
