The Ledger Independent: Drunk driving program shows drunk driving effects

By Christy Howell-Hoots

Juniors and seniors from Bracken County High School and Augusta Independent School were shown the possible effects of driving under the influence Friday.

During a mock drunk driving accident, students sat on bleachers as tarps were removed to reveal two crashed vehicles with people trapped inside. In one vehicle was Bracken County High School Senior Josiah Mayfield, covered in fake blood and surrounded by open beer cans.

Mayfield was removed from the car by Bracken County Sheriff's Deputy Ian Kelsch and forced to stand with hands cuffed and watch as others were removed from the second vehicle.

In the second vehicle were two injured girls, who were taken from the school and placed in an ambulance before being transported further from the lot to meet the Air Evac helicopter.
