It's a scene Kentucky State Police say they see too often. Emergency crews rushing to a crash, helicopters being dispatched, all because of an accident from texting and driving.
"Texting is one of the types of distractions that takes all 3 types of distractions. You have your manual where you are actually taking your hands off the wheel, the cognitive where you are taking your mind off, and your visual," says Trooper Jonathan Biven.
Fortunately Wednesday's accident was a mock crash to demonstrate to students at Caverna High School the dangers of texting and driving. Although the dangers affect everyone, young people are especially venerable.
"The students have grown up with technology so they think it's a part of them and being older I don't see it as part of me, I see it as a tool to be used at a different time," says Guidance Counselor Jane Edwards.
Many believe talking and driving can become safer with the use of a Bluetooth device, but police advise the safest thing is to throw the phone in the back seat.
"People say they buy the Bluetooth devices but even then you are still taking away the cognitive part, you are still engrossed in the conversation rather than the actual driving," says Trooper Biven.
Students say Wednesday's crash scene was an eye opening experience, realizing they aren't invisible to dangers on the road.
"It can happen to anybody, not just people out in big cities, but anybody including us in a small town," says student George Boyd.
From those small towns to big cities Kentucky State Police want to remind everyone texting and driving is a zero tolerance law in Kentucky.
