TYLER — In the midst of prom after party rumors, John Tyler High School partnered with Shattered Dreams to create a simulated drunk driving crash.

"We saw some information about after parties and stuff like that and we know, we've all been in high school," Criss Hammack, a school resource officer said. "So we decided this would be an important program to put on to show them the realities of what drinking and driving looks like.

Juniors and seniors watched first responders work to save the lives of their classmates.

They're encouraging students to utilize the resources they have around them for their safety.

"Uber, taxies, a friend that's not intoxicated, there's so many more choices now than there have ever been in this area, to not get behind the wheel or get in the vehicle with somebody that's been drinking," Hammack said.

City of Tyler Fire, Police and EMS all volunteered their time today to make the event as realistic as possible for the students.
