Simulated crash gives high school students a reality check

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) Students at Regis High School got a dose of reality at a simulated mock crash.

The simulation was put on to raise awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving.

This is prom season and graduation is right around the corner, both of which can carry risks.

"I think it's just important for kids to keep in mind that your going to make decision in your life that will affect the rest of your life, and hopefully they're just for the good," says Hank Gilbertson, a student.

After the simulation, a police officer, a funeral director, and health care provider talked about what happens after such a crash.
