MIDLAND - What happens when you text and drive?

Midland High students found out on Wednesday.

They tested out a simulator.

Students were able to experience first-hand what it's like to drive while distracted without being in any real danger.

AT&T hosted the event as a way to enlighten students about the dangers.

They say texting is the number one way teens communicate and that one text can make drivers travel the distance of a football field without looking at the road.
