Don't forget LPFD they are the ones who get the victims out of the cars when they are trapped. And let's include LP EMS. They transport the injured. Shattered Dreams is a citywide effort on educating our young people into hopefully making a better decision. My child was in Shattered Dreams several years ago. It is a very emotional experience. You never know how precious life is until you are writing a mock obituary for a 17 year old child.

You're right!! Every vehicle that would be called to an actual car crash was involved!!
It was a very somber event. There were also 2 Grim Reapers that were walking around the "crash" site. There were some parents that were there on the sidelines watching the event because their son or daughter was one of the actors. I got to talk to a grandfather of one of the students that happened to be one to die in the "crash". I could see that he was very affected by it. He said his wife, the students Grandmother, and another relative were very upset and crying. They knew it wasn't real but that's how powerful this event was for them. They watched their granddaughter being taken off by a hearse.
I just hope and pray that an impression was made on all the high school students. Especially being right around the corner from Prom time.
