GVHS The Scene of Mock Car Crash April 15

This Wednesday, April 15th students at Grain Valley High School in conjunction with the Grain Valley Police Department, Missouri Highway Patrol and the Central Jackson County Fire Department will take part in a program aimed at educating young drivers about the consequences and impact of risky driving behaviors.

The Missouri Highway Patrol will show the video, "Gone Too Soon," showing video testimonials of the effects of inattentive and distracted drivers.  Students will then take part in a mock accident and rescue to visualize the dangers that can befall distracted drivers.

Area residents may notice emergency first-responder vehicles, equipment, and personnel on the high school campus the day of the event supporting the learning experience. This is a staged mock catastrophe for the benefit of students.
