The last thing Paul Carvin can remember telling his wife was ‘I love you’.
The same day in 2006, 42-year-old ZoeÂ was killed when a lorry driver crashed into her stationary car as he was reading a text message.
Her family’s story will be told as part of a new advert highlighting the dangers of using a mobile phone while driving.
The Think! video has been released to coincide with the toughening of legislation that will see guilty drivers receive six points on their licence as well as a Â£200 fine.
In the clip, Mr Carvin and his two children, recall the moment the seven-and-a-half tonne truck hit their mother’s Skoda as it was sat at traffic lights in Denwick, Northumberland.
‘People use the word accident. It wasn’t an accident,’ Paul said.
‘It didn’t come about by accident. It was a road crash, caused by somebody doing something that he shouldn’t have been doing.’
In 2015, 22 people were killed and 99 seriously injured by accidents on Britain’s roads where a driver was using a mobile phone.
The incident is tragically similar to a crash that killed a mother and three children on the A34 in Berkshire.
Tomasz Korker was jailed for ten years in October for the crash which killed Tracy Houghton, 45, her sons Ethan, 13, and Josh, 11, and her stepdaughter, Aimee Goldsmith, 11.
That incident will also form part of an advert that will be shown at cinemas across the UK from this Friday.
