GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Students at Western Guilford High School saw first-hand Friday of what texting and driving can lead to.
Friday, more than 300 students experienced an accident re-creation followed by four videos written and starring Western Guilford theatre arts students.
The program is called "A Message 2 Die 4" and is put on by local first responders, Guilford County schools, and business owners concerned about the dangers of texting and driving.
"The live crash scenario is extremely realistic," said Officer JB Price, Traffic Safety educator with Greensboro Police. "The simulation includes police, fire, and EMS managing the fatal accident scene just as if it were real. We will be moving the same speed, using the same equipment, and taking the same actions as if this were an actual crash."
