Pequot Lakes Students Experience Mock Car Crash
Juniors and seniors at Pequot Lakes High School were given a shocking lesson about the effects of drunk and distracted driving. Put on by local agencies, a mock car crash scene was put into place in the parking lot.
The mock head-on collision involved five students acting as if the crash actually happened. During the demonstration, one passenger was ejected from the car and pronounced dead at the scene, one was in critical condition and had to be airlifted to the hospital, and the drunk driver was given a field sobriety test and then arrested. The other two passengers suffered from non life-threatening injuries.
The fake crash scene was a way to show students the effects of drunk driving right before their prom this weekend.
