Mock DWI Crash Held At New York Mills High School
A fatal drunk driving crash with multiple injuries.
That was the scene at New York Mills High School on Thursday as a mock DWI/Texting While Driving crash was held for students.
Students from the high school played the roles of the victims in the crash.
Tom Giruzzi, the Oneida County STOP DWI Coordinator, says it was the students who added the texting while driving element to the scenario. Giruzzi says he hopes the demonstration sends a message to students, to stay away from destructive decisions.
The event is part of Teen Traffic Safety Week in Oneida County.
Students from Notre Dame High School also attended the mock crash.
