A staged car crash was put together by the Corpus Christi Police Department on Tuesday morning.

The mock crash, as part of the Shattered Dreams event, was put on in an effort to reduce underage drinking. The staged crash involved high school students acting out a dramatic scene illustrating the horror of a crash caused by a drunk driver.

The event was held with the participation of the local hospital systems, the Corpus Christi Fire Department, Texas Department of Public Safety, the Corpus Christi Independant School District, and a variety of dedicated volunteers.
