Henderson Students Get Texting and Driving Lesson

And teens at Henderson County High School experience what it's like to be distracted while driving.
Experts say more than 20-percent of deadly crashes involving teenagers are caused by texting and driving.  And teens at Henderson County High School got some real-life experience on Thursday.

The group, "Save a Life" held driving simulations where students got to experience what it's like to be distracted behind the wheel.

Experts say the simulation is not exactly like driving a real car, but say learning from this experience is much better than the real-life alternative.
