On Monday, April 4, 2022, Kelly High School will be hosting a Shattered Dreams Program outlining the dangers of drinking and driving. Traffic Collisions, many involving drugs and alcohol, are the leading cause of serious injuries and death of Texans aged 15 – 19. There will be a mock accident staged in front of the high school at 10:00 am. Involved in the accident will be one fatality, one critically injured (will be transported by Air-Rescue), 3 injured that will be transported by Acadian Ambulance Service and one driver will be placed under arrest for Driving While Intoxicated, and Intoxication Manslaughter.
"Shattered Dreams" is an educational experience that reminds us all of the dangers associated with drinking and driving. It reminds us that too many young lives have already been lost and countless others severely impacted because of the tragic consequences of underage drinking combined with driving. "Shattered Dreams" is not about drinking and driving. It's about living and dying. "Shattered Dreams" can make a difference in a young person's life. Families, schools, faith-based organizations and community groups in Texas must join together to teach young people that consuming alcohol while underage is never a good choice. Our communities can’t afford to ignore the devastating impact that underage drinking is causing.
