LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - With prom and graduation season a couple of months away, teens will be out celebrating, which is why SCAN and local high schools are reminding students about the dangers of drinking and driving.
A Texas mother and son met with local students to share with them how one bad decision can change the rest of your life.
When Sean Carter was 22-years-old, he was the passenger in a truck driven by a college friend who was drunk.
Sean and his friend got into a car accident that resulted in Sean suffering a brain injury. After that day, Sean was no longer able to walk or talk.
Now, he uses an iPad to communicate with others.
Instead of focusing on the grief from his loss, his mother says he has decided to share his story to fellow students about the dangers of drunk driving and how one bad decision could cost you.
Sean and his mother have met with thousands of students since they started sharing his story.
The mother and son visited Martin High School and Harmony on Thursday.
