The scenes were realistic as students at Spencer County High School witnessed a mock crash scene last week to help drive home a message of safety on the roads during prom and graduation season. First responders treat the wounded, a few of whom were lucky enough to walk away.

The scene was staged, but the message was clear as first responders provided an up-close and realistic reminder to Spencer County High School students about the dangers of distracted driving Friday.

In the front lot of the high school, two accidents were staged. The first one was for freshmen and sophomores in the morning, the second one for upper classmen in the afternoon. Both involved two vehicles, multiple injuries, a fatality, and a driver ultimately arrested for drunk driving.
