          Under the Influence

          June 18, 2012

          The statistics are sobering: Every 50 minutes, someone is killed in an alcohol-related crash, and the average drunk driver hits the road 80 times before they’re ever arrested. Dr. Phil’s guests open up about the dangers of drinking and driving and the unbearable pain caused when someone becomes another statistic.

          Drunken Denial?
          Kelli, 40, says she drinks and drives on a weekly basis but doesn’t think she has an alcohol problem. The mother of two credits her high tolerance for getting her home safely. But how will she fare when she’s put to the test? Plus Sarah, who narrowly escaped death in a drunk-driving crash, shares her story — and has a powerful message for Kelli!

          “The day I wake up with a DUI or in jail, that’s when I’ll have hit rock bottom.”

          More Than a Passenger
          Carrie says her brother, Zac Hartwell, is known as “the passenger” who was killed along with MTV Jackass star Ryan Dunn in an alcohol-related crash. She joins Dr. Phil in an exclusive interview to let the world know that her brother was not just a passenger; he was a veteran, son and friend.

          “He was the funniest person I’ve ever met in my life.”
