Sober lesson in mock crash
MARATHON — Members of Students Against Dangerous Decisions, or SADD, staged a mock drunken car crash Friday morning with the help of the Marathon Fire Department.
Just one day before the junior-senior prom, Marathon high school students gathered in an adjacent field to the school to witness the aftermath of a fatal two-car crash.
Senior SADD member Rebecca Veninsky, also the secretary for student council, said it is important to show students the reality of what could happen if they choose to drink and drive.
“We want to raise awareness that this could happen and that they need to be careful,” she said.
