Shattered Dreams Program Warns Dangers Of Teenage Drinking And Driving

It was an emotional message on the dangers of teenage drinking and driving in College Station Tuesday morning.

Juniors and seniors at A&M Consolidated High School witnessed Shattered Dreams at the school.

The program held every four years simulates a drunk driving accident complete with first responders, including ambulances and a Saint Joseph PHI helicopter.

Two students were loaded into hearses while pretending to be dead while another student was taken into custody for DWI during the simulation.

The warning serves as a reminder with prom this weekend.

"By looking at the students I think everybody understood what the message is it's very clear. And we hope that they take that to heart. Unfortunately we see far too often too many drinking accidents on a regular basis even within our own community here," said Chief Jeff Capps, of the College Station Police Department.

Ten A&M Consolidated High School students participated in the mock accident.
