Timberlake Fights Drunk Driving

Pop singer Justin Timberlake joined a campaign to fight drunken driving after a fan was killed this month by a motorist outside one of the singer’s radio appearances.

The ‘N Sync performer announced plans Tuesday to work with Recording Artists, Actors & Athletes Against Drunk Driving – known as RADD – and to produce a public-service video.

Anna White, a 21-year-old fan from Bellevue, Wash., was killed on Sept. 9 by a pickup truck going in reverse. She was standing in a group of people waiting to see Timberlake outside radio station KIIS-FM in Burbank, Calif., on Sept. 9.

“The senseless death of Anna White yet again demonstrates the horrors of drunk driving,” Timberlake said in a written statement. “I can only hope that partnering with RADD will raise awareness, and convince others never to drive after they’ve had even a few drinks.”

The driver, Cameron Duty, was charged with murder, said his attorney, Ed Tolmas. Duty remains jailed in lieu of $1 million bail. An arraignment was scheduled for Thursday in Pasadena Superior Court.

Duty was initially arrested for investigation of drunken driving.
