Manheim Central High School staged a mock vehicle accident scene to educate junior and senior high students on the dangers associated with distracted driving and driving under the influence.

Contributors to the event included student actors, Northwest EMS, Manheim Borough Police Department, Manheim Fire Department with mutual aid from Mastersonville Fire Company and Penryn Fire Department, Kreiser’s Garage, and the Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office.

The mock accident realistically recreated all aspects of EMS response to an accident scene. The event was closed with brief presentations from Dr. James Leaming (Hershey Medical Emergency Department) and Jamie Ressler, a mother who lost her son as a result of a vehicle accident in 2012.

 

Kanyon Bollinger, sadly, was a “fatality” of the mock accident at Manheim Central High School.
