ABILENE, Texas — Controlled chaos struck Texas State Technical College's Abilene campus Friday morning as two vehicles carrying a variety of faculty members and others hit head-on in a field near the parking lot - although all injuries were pretend.
At least two people were "killed" in the crash. However, they continued breathing and, when not part of the main scene, could be seen occasionally shifting around and talking. One actually sat up and adjusted the blanket covering him.
