The Courant (Glastonbury, CT) February 26, 2014:

As a father of a teenage driver, Hollister thought he was educated parent until his son, Reid, was killed in a 2006 crash. Since Reid's death, Hollister, a Bloomfield resident, has been helping to craft the state's new graduated driver's licensing law and getting his safe-driving message out to parents and teens across the state.
