The Columbus Youth Advisory Council will create a texting while driving video to call attention to the dangers.
A one-car accident will be staged on Lumpkin Boulevard from 6-7:30 p.m. Monday near the Columbus Civic Center. One occupant dies when the car with four students crashes while the driver and others are texting.
With members from the council taking part in the event, CCG-TV will produce the video and distribute it to all high schools, libraries, public safety and other organizations interested in the message.
The youth council is a partnership between the city of Columbus and Muscogee County School District which encourages youth leadership on issues and the development of solutions.
