Meadville Area Senior High School’s Students Against Drunk Driving and many of Crawford County's emergency responders staged a mock drunk driving accident this morning on school property.

The accident is staged every year before prom and graduation to keep students aware of the hazards of not only drinking and driving, but also distracted driving. EMMCO West added the makeup artistry for a realistic effect while Meadville City Police conducted a sobriety test and made an arrest for DUI.

Officials on scene are hopeful that the visual of what the students were a part of today will help them make smart choices this coming weekend and in the future.
