On Monday, May 7th, Palmer High School held a mock accident to raise awareness of distracted, and impaired driving. Pathfinder attended with grades 10-12, and Palmer High’s 10-12. The police placed a car to seem as if it crashed into a tree, with three students inside it. The front seat passenger was on the ground in front of the car. There were two students participating from each school. The two participating from Palmer High were Natirasia Addy and Kyle Mastalerz.

Shortly after, students gathered outside in front of Palmer High. The Life Flight helicopter landed in the front faculty parking lot and the four students got into their places. To start of the scenario, Officer Wahlers pulled up to the scene, and first went to the car to ask the passengers condition. He then went to check on the front seat passenger that was on the ground in front of the car. When he didn’t feel a pulse, he went back to the car to ask the other passengers questions. First he pulled Natirasia, the driver, out for questioning. She was confirmed to be driving under the influence, so Officer Wahlers arrested her and put her in the back of the squad car.

Once she was arrested, the firemen started to pry open the doors of the car to get the backseat passengers out so they could get the medical attention they needed.  The mock accident ended with one backseat passenger being transported by the ambulance, and the other being transported by Life Flight. The front seat passenger, Kyle Mastalerz was presumed dead and was taken away by a hearse. Once the mock accident was over, all of the students from both schools joined in the auditorium to listen to Officer Wahlers and firefighter Laurie Rocco speak about the topic and answer questions. Overall, students got to see in person what could possibly happen to them if they got into a car with a drunk driver, or a distracted driver and it was very educational. Thank you to Mrs. North, the police department, first responders, and anyone else who made it possible to hold the mock accident.
