Ingleside High School students see the “dead” body of a fellow student who was thrown through the windshield in a mock drinking and driving accident set up in front of the school as part of the Shattered Dreams Program. Student actors included grim reapers, as seen in photo, and victims to portray students with various injuries. A HALO Flight helicopter flies out the critically injured, a deceased student is taken by a local funeral home, another is led off in handcuffs by local law enforcement, facing charges of manslaughter. There is even a mock memorial service the next day. The goal of the two-day, school-based program is to promote responsible decision-making among high school students regarding underage drinking and impaired driving by showing them how irresponsible choices can end all dreams.
