Mock Crash at South Gibson County High School @ South Gibson County High School

A mock DUI crash is a staged event that uses real vehicles and actors where alcohol is the reason for the crash. Emergency (air evacuation, police, fire, ambulance, etc) personnel respond to the scene as if it were real. These are conducted for the seniors only around prom time to raise awareness of the dangerous and deadly effects of drinking and driving. Gibson County Coordinated School Health Coordinators developed a countywide Mock Crash Drama Team who acts in each event. Students from each district in Gibson County were trained to participate in the simulated crash.

This is part of the Coordinated School Health program that address youth risk behaviors. The goal of this program is to address the deadly consequences of drinking and driving or driving distracted or drowsy.
