WELLSVILLE, Ohio – Eighteen high school students acted as the victims in a mock accident on Wednesday afternoon as officials in Wellsville wanted to make sure students are educated on driver safety with prom season nearing.
One student was an example of what could happen while drinking and driving.
Fake blood was slapped over both cars to show students how real a car accident can be.
Police and fireman all took part in making the accident look real.
“If you look at what they put on Instagram, Facebook, everything is a ‘right now’ country to where they want to put it on their sites immediately,” Wellsville fireman Tim Long said. “So everybody gets the message, we don't want that final message to be, did you
hear about such and such that was in a car wreck and died? We want it to be, ‘Hey I'm home, everything is safe mom and dad.’”
