High School Students Attend Mock Car Crash
On Friday, April 29, students in grades 10-12 attended the presentation of a Mock Car Crash presented by SADD (Students against Destructive Decisions). This was a dramatic reenactment of what happens during a real car crash. Students watched this play out on the Secondary School football field. Emergency Vehicles and Police arrived to the field with lights and sirens. The scene played out as if it was a real accident, including jaws of life tools to help extricate the victims from the vehicle.
After the crash, Lieutenant Catherine Michal spoke about losing her daughter to a drunk driver. Mock car accidents like this one are an important event that allow students to see the effects of their decisions. It serves as a reminder to make safe decisions not only this weekend for prom, but for the rest of their lives.
Special thanks to the High School SADD Organization, South Metro Fire, The South St. Paul Police Department, Kandt-Tetrick Funeral Home, Terry Johnson from South Metro Fire, and Lieutenant Michal for their participation in this mock car crash.
