FOX 17 News This Morning's TrafficJamSam talked about her own experience with drunk drivers during a mock crash at McGavock High School.

In 2016, Sam was hit head-on by a drunk driver on New Year's Day morning while on her way to work. Sam said it has changed her life forever.

On Thursday, the Nashville Fire Department hosted the mock crash to create awareness about the dangers of impaired and distracted driving. Metro schools, LifeFlight, Tennessee Highway Patrol, Mothers Against Drunk Driving and emergency communicators were on hand.

The mock crash scenario involved an impaired teen driver and multiple casualties.
