Deer Park High School Students Witness Dangers of Drunk Driving

May 9, 2013

Deer Park High School Juniors and Seniors witnessed a horrifying example of the dangers of driving while impaired or distracted on Thursday afternoon.  With the help of the Deer Park/Silverton Joint Fire Department, the Deer Park Police, and UC Medical's AirCare team, the students and staff of Deer Park were able to take part in a real-life scenario of the effects of drunk driving.  Just two days before our students step into their shined up shoes and Prom attire to celebrate with their friends, this resounding exercise is one that we hope will remind students to make careful and wise choices on Saturday evening.  Many thanks to our student actors Haley Hodge, Sam Clement, Lauren Troxell, and Darryl Ringwood and to Ms. Jen Taylor for her efforts in coordinating the mock crash.
