In an effort to show the dangers of drunk driving, authorities in Chisago County, Minnesota shared photos of a crash that took place over the holiday weekend.

As many across the state celebrate Memorial Day weekend, officials urge drivers to plan accordingly.

"We just cleared a crash involving an impaired driver who had a sober driver en route to pick up the driver of this vehicle. Choosing to drink and drive could have a fatal outcome.  This driver is lucky to have survived the crash," officials wrote.
