On Tuesday May 29th, 2018, the members of the Coatesville Area Senior High School SADD program in partnership with local emergency responder agencies held a “mock crash’ at the high school. The students were able to see what happens when they make a destructive decision while driving. This particular mock crash was set up as a drunk driving event and students participated in the event for their classmates.
From the SADD website:
Members of the Thorndale Volunteer Fire Company responded to the scene of the “crash” and found two vehicles in an apparent head-on collision with one fatality in each vehicle caused by the drunk driver. Thorndale worked along side the VA Fire Department, CASH Police Department, Washington Hose Company Ambulance team, Medic 93 from the Brandywine Hospital and the Caln Township Police Department. Crews showed the students exactly what happens when people make destructive decisions. After the demonstration was complete, all in attendance retired to the school auditorium to listen to a brief presentation from the crews involved as well as from two teens that had themselves been involved in a serious crash back in February 2013.
We would like to thank the following individuals who contributed to this event:
