Mock Drunk Driving Crash at Wapato H.S.

Posted: Updated:

WAPATO, Wash. -- As part of the school's Drug and Alcohol Prevention Week, students at Wapato High School took part in a mock drunk driving accident Thursday morning.

Their intention was to give students a visual of what can happen if you drink and drive. The demonstration was organized and performed by the school's Leadership Group.

They teamed up with law enforcement agencies and rescue teams to make it look authentic.

"To see your friend lying dead on a hood and other people bleeding, it's kind of hard to picture", says Flor Reyes, a senior and student leader at Wapato. "When it's demonstrated, it really does impact them".

The school does the mock accident once every four years so all students get a chance to experience it.
