SHOUT OUT: A week before their senior prom, Fort Lee High School students will play victims in a DWI crash re-enactment in the school parking lot tomorrow morning.
Fort Lee police, firefighters and educators collaborated on the 8:30 a.m. event, aimed at showing “how one poor choice can lead to death and even prison,” Detective Jaime Cuevas said this morning.
Speakers will include Municipal Court Judge Matthew Fierro, who will discuss the criminal procedures and legal consequences for a drunk-driving conviction.
ABC Towing donated the two vehicles that will be used in the staged crash.
Four students have volunteered to play victims. One will be a drunk driver who is texting, while another will be an intoxicated passenger.
In the script, the driver survives but the passenger dies — as does the driver of the other car, who is out with his wife on what for them is a date night.
Fort Lee Fire Department Engine/Rescue Company #2 and the Fort Lee Volunteer Ambulance Corp will demonstrate how they respond and react to a serious accident involving an entrapment and multiple injuries.
