Edmonson Voice Staff Report:
Edmonson County Emergency personnel has announced that the annual "Mock Crash" will be held today at ECHS on the football field. The event is sponsored by the Youth Service Center each year.
"If you live in town, you'll likely hear sirens and see many emergency vehicles," said Sheriff Shane Doyle. "Please don't be alarmed as this is part of the program."
The event depicts a live car crash with severe injuries that occur due to drinking while driving, or driving while distracted. Emergency personnel work the scene as it's actually happening with local law enforcement, EMS, fire departments, and an Air EVAC helicopter which actually lands on the football field, weather permitting.
The event is free and the public is invited. All juniors and seniors will watch the event live. We will have a full story later including video from today's event.
