Spring, Texas – April 5th, 2016: Spring High School will be staging a Shattered Dreams re-enactment of a car accident from 7:15 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Thursday, April 7, 2016 on the school’s back parking lot with juniors and seniors attending. The purpose of the event is to raise student awareness of the dangers of drunk driving and texting while driving.

Although this event is not open to the public, we want our community to be aware because this re-enactment will look very real. Student actors will demonstrate the results of an accident caused by drunk driving, and local emergency responders will participate on the scene.

Following the re-enactment, a number of juniors and seniors who have been pre-selected will be taken out of their classes every 15 minutes as a scripted demonstration that every 15 minutes someone dies due to an impaired driver. Please be assured that this is all part of the two-day event that will conclude on Friday, April 8, 2016 with an assembly of juniors and seniors in the auditorium.

The Shattered Dreams program is an educational experience provided to high school students in the Houston area through collaboration with the Harris Health System.

We would like to thank the following for partnering with Spring High School to make this important event a success:
Ben Taub Hospital – Harris Health System,
Spring Fire Department,
Harris County Sherriff’s Department,
Spring ISD Police Department,
Harris Health – EMS,
PHI Emergency (Life Flight),
