A shocking video made for pupils in an attempt to stop car crashes caused by the driver texting while driving has become an "internet sensation" in the US with more than 1 million hits. As they return to school Americans are turning to the British video to keep their children safe.  It could also be aired on American TV. The short film, starring young actors from south Wales, shows a teenage girl killing four people after she uses her mobile phone to send a text.  Gwent Police said it hoped the graphic video would be shown in schools around Wales and hopefully the rest of the UK.  Research has shown texting while driving slows reaction time by 35%. The film by Peter Watkins-Hughes has also been posted on video sharing website You Tube. It shows in slow motion a crash caused after a girl, called Cassie, briefly loses concentration of the road while looking at her mobile. It also includes footage of all the emergency services attending the crash scene, including the air ambulance and firefighters. .Picture:  25 August 2009: Universal News and Sport (Scotland).All pictures must be credited to  www.universalnewsandsport.com.(0ffice) 0844 884 51 22..
