ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Saturday night WALB-TV will broadcast a very powerful documentary about the dangers of drinking and driving, that your family needs to watch.

The documentary is the compelling story of a young Georgia man who killed two people while driving drunk.

"Enduring Regret: Chris Sandy's Story of Living Life After Causing Death" shows Georgia inmate Chris Sandy talking to high school students about his life.

In April 2000, then-high school student Chris Sandy, driving from one drinking party to another, was going more than 80 miles an hour when he hit another car, killing an elderly couple.

Sandy is serving a 30-year sentence and has spoken to more than 100,000 high school students about his regrets.

Albany Safe Communities Coordinator Michele DeMott said "We encourage families and teenagers to come together and watch this show and talk about it amongst themselves and their family. And for parents to encourage their children not to drink and drive."

"Enduring Regrets" was produced by the Governor's Office of Highway Safety, and will be shown as a community service by WALB Saturday night at 7:30.
