Springfield Township Presents Mock Crash Scene To Demonstrate Drinking and Driving at Finneytown High School

On April 26th, Springfield Township Police and Fire Departments, Neidhard Young Funeral Home, and several students and administrators from Finneytown High School demonstrated a mock prom scene crash.  With Finneytown High School prom taking place the following Saturday and many other end-of-year events occurring, the school district and first responders felt it highly important to impress upon the students the possible consequences when making poor choices of consuming alcohol or drugs and driving. Several Finneytown seniors participated in the demonstration as victims and those who caused the accident.  

Unfortunately, these scenes are all too familiar for our officers and first responders. It's important to talk to our kids about impaired and distracted driving - especially as prom season and graduation parties approach. Be safe. Driving impaired or distracted isn't worth the life-changing result of these decisions.
