The Shattered Dreams program teaches teens about drunk driving

An annual program aimed at teaching teens the hazards of drunk driving was held at Silsbee High School this morning.

The Shattered Dreams program is a simulation designed to allow teens to experience the effects of a drunk driving accident.  

Organizers used two wrecked cars to simulate the accident; then four students pretended to be either dead or injured.   

The entire simulation was performed to show exactly how responders would work on a drunk driving scene, complete with police and a rescue helicopter.

To give their piers the full experience of losing a classmate, the "dead" students will not return to class today and a memorial service will be held tomorrow.

The Shattered Dreams program is held at a different school every year.
