Matt’s Story

On June 22, 2013, Matt admittedly made the worst decision of his life. He drank excessively, then got behind the wheel. That night, while driving his car the wrong way down the freeway, he hit and killed Vincent Canzani.



In the weeks following he decided to take responsibility for his crime and made a video titled “I Killed A Man” to take responsibility and attempt to spread the message that drinking and driving has fatal consequences.

Matthew is currently serving a 6.5-year prison sentence in Columbus, OH, but recognizes this punishment pales in comparison to the life he took. His blog posts are an opportunity to continue to spread his message while he serves his sentence. His family members also contribute to this blog.
