RAYMORE, Mo. -- Juniors and seniors at Ray-Pec High School watched a simulated crash on Wednesday, in front of the south high school.
"It makes it very realistic. You never know who you’re going to pass and if they’re drinking -- it’s very serious," said one student who attended the event.
The event was a realistic enactment of a serious crash involving teenagers. Emergency personnel participate in the enactment, and events occurred much as they would at an actual accident scene.
After watching Wednesday's reenactment, some students were visibly shaken by the event.
"This is crazy. It makes me not, like, even want to be on the road with people who are driving drunk," said one student who attended the demonstration.
The event is presented every other year and is a combined effort of SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) and the Drama Club, under the direction of the club sponsors, Tina Fultz and Todd Schnake. School Resource Officer Audra Ayers coordinates participation by local emergency personnel.
