Drunk Driving Fallout: Students receive an extensive education


Cornell (WQOW) - Students in Cornell and Lake Holcombe are learning about the dangers of drinking and driving through a comprehensive approach.

Educators and emergency responders set up a mock crash on Wednesday.  Students also learned about impacts beyond the crash including jail time, a criminal record and victims dealing with memories.  This is all part of an effort to make sure kids have a safer spring and retain these lessons for life.  "It shows that even the students that are here can be in accidents.  It's not like a once in a lifetime thing, it can happen anywhere," said Sara Stender, a 9th grade student.

The lessons didn't stop there.  Students are also writing essays, researching and taking part in more events.
