"The Last Text" has been released by AT&T and features stories about people whose lives were adversely affected by texting while driving.

"While I'm generally very hesitant to send out e-mails on videos like these, this is probably the most real and honest video about what happens due to texting while driving," said JCPD Capt. Doug Shoemaker. "These are real stories, and I think anyone, unfortunately, can relate, and it does it without gore."

The video is being distributed to schools, safety organizations and government agencies.
