KLAMATH FALLS, Ore.– Students in Klamath Falls are getting a graphic simulation of the consequences of drinking and driving. Nearly 1,000 high school students from Henley, Bonanza, and Triad were at the Henley High School football field Thursday morning, for “Operation Prom Night”.
Organizers say the event simulates a realistic head-on collision between two cars. Make-up and fake blood was used to turn volunteers into pretend crash victims. It gives students a chance to see what emergency responders see in these severe crashes.
Multiple law and medical agencies, as well as funeral homes, were also participating. It’s all in an event to prevent drinking and driving, especially on prom night.
