SAN ANTONIO - Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is using virtual reality to put the brakes on distracted driving.

They rolled out a new simulator game at Ingram Park Mall Sunday.

It shows you how easily an accident can happen when you're distracted, even for a second.

"When we drive, it's crucially important that we pay attention to driving. I mean, there's so many distractions to driving that can lead to accidents...in San Antonio in particular has the highest per person rate of serious and deadly crashes," said Robert Santiago, Talk Text Crash Campaign.

TxDOT crunched the numbers on this and across Texas in the last year, one in five crashes involved distracted driving.

There were more than 14,000 of them.
