A national phone company set up shop at Midwestern State University this morning to educate young adults about the dangers of texting while driving.

AT&T brought its Anti-Texting While Driving Simulator to the campus to give students a hands on sample of how texting impairs driving ability.

Many who took the challenge ended up hitting pedestrians or running off the road and crashing.

It's a lesson one student told us he learned the hard way three months ago.

"The person that was driving... that I was sitting next to was my cousin. Q: Did he end up wrecking? Yes. He totaled the car and I messed up my leg. That's why I don't text cause I have first hand and it's not cool," says MSU student Camden Ford.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 3,000 people die each year in crashes involving a driver who is distracted by a cell phone.
