Emergency responders teamed up with drama students at Juanita High School (JHS) on June 1 to re-enact a DUI head-on collision.
The effort aims to get students thinking about the consequences of drinking and driving. It also emphasizes the importance of wearing a seatbelt.
The experience was coordinated by JHS, the Kirkland Police Department, the Kirkland Fire Department and Airlift Northwest.
Students sat mostly silent as the scene unfolded, occasionally wiping away a tear.
After the re-enactment, a father shared the personal experience of his own son’s death. Students returned to their classrooms to debrief and reflect on their reactions.
