Students learn dangers of driving under influence


Beavercreek police and fire departments, in addition to community leaders, CareFlight, Kettering Health Network and a local funeral home all volunteered their time for the demonstration to the students. Fire officials said they choose to participate in events of this kind to pay respect to the individuals who died as a result of impaired driving.


Whitney Vickers | News-Current Beavercreek High School students saw first-hand the possible results of driving under the influence. Students volunteered to play injured victims, a drunk driver and a fatality, all resulting from a crash.


Beavercreek High School wrapped up the presentation with words from community leaders, Beavercreek police and fire officials in addition to Laura Segar, a local mother whose son died in an accident in 2010 as a result of another driver “huffing” and deeming herself able to drive. Segar, also known as “Joey’s mom,” said her son was a senior in high school when he died and told the students about the night before the crash, the crash itself and what it was like to hear the news. She said she hopes her story is able to inspire at least one person to never drive under the influence.


The mock crash started with unveiling and revealing the scene to students, followed by playing a 911 call concerning the event. Firefighters and police officers arrived shortly thereafter, explaining that individuals injured in the crash are prioritized first, while the individual who laid atop the hood of the silver car acting as a dead person would be prioritized last.
