Out of Nowhere

On February 2004 Maria Federici’s life was shattered due to an unsecured load, but her tragedy is on its way to changing national safety laws. Out of Nowhere is a behind-the-scenes account by Maria’s mother Robin Abel & Peggy Sturdivant: a story of heroes that reads like a detective thriller.
