Mock accident as teaching tool
local picture
About 1,200 to 1,400 Mercer County junior and senior high school students watched a mock accident at the Mercer County Fairgrounds on Tuesday morning. Below, emergency personnel place one of the victims of the two-car crash on a stretcher as 911 Coordinator Monte Diegel, right, explains to the students what is happening in the drunk driving fatality. The Mercer County Sheriff's office in cooperation with local emergency medical services, fire and law enforcement agencies staged this mock crash for all six county high schools to warn teenagers of the dangers of drinking and driving. Tim Wurster of Celina, who was critically injured in a 1985 accident, also spoke.
