ROYERSFORD — The potentially deadly consequences of mixing dangerous activities with prom night festivities will be witnessed April 20 (2012; Friday) by Spring-Ford Area Senior High School students during an 8 a.m. mock crash conducted by Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) and sponsored by State Farm Insurance.
The event, which emphasizes the importance of making responsible decisions traveling to and from the prom, will be held at the high school 10-12 Grade Center’s parking lot, 350 S. Lewis Rd., Royersford.
Student actors will portray victims of a fatal automobile accident caused by driving under the influence and other life-altering decisions. Local emergency responders will work to rescue them from a crashed car and will treat the victims at the scene. Others will be taken away by ambulances and a medical helicopter.
The message is intended to help 11th- and 12th-grade students drive safely and make wise choices during their April 21 (Saturday) prom, according to school officials.
Local emergency crews “have been very helpful in making this event as real as an actual crash site, to help our students understand their choices have a real and lasting impact,” Principal Jeff Kollar said.
