Punxsutawney High School held mock crash before prom

Punxsutawney –

The Punxsutawney Area High School hosted a mock drunk driving car crash on Friday before prom Saturday, reminding students of the danger of drinking and driving.

Despite the rain, juniors and seniors were brought out to the back parking lot of the school to see the mock crash in person.

The PAHS Future First Responders Club arranged and were the student actors in the mock crash.

The club had two cars donated for the event from Rebuck’s Southside Towing, and had two students in each car.

All of the town’s fire alarms were sounded and emergency personnel responded to the parking lot to handle the mock crash scene as realistically as possible.

A similar mock crash will be conducted at DuBois Area High School on May 19th.
