ROSSFORD - The city's police department will stage a mock fatal automobile crash Wednesday to demonstrate the dangers of drunk and inattentive driving.
The event will be held at 1:25 p.m. at Rossford High School's Jackson-Ferguson football stadium. The date is three days prior to Saturday's Senior Prom, which will be held at the Toledo Zoo.
Police advised that the event may be heard on scanners, and the mock crash incident will unfold in real time.
They further advised that the mock scene appears very realistic, and will include student actors who will portray "injured crash victims." It will also include actual damaged vehicles, make-believe blood and injuries and a staged fatality.
The simulation will be transmitted over live police dispatch radios, and also will sound realistic.
Rossford Chief Glenn Goss, Officer Jodi Johnson, and Perrysburg Township Officer Rachel Bernhard will deliver a speech to students about fatalities due to preventable automobile accidents.
The event is to make students and the community aware of the hazards of drunk driving, including driving while intoxicated by illegal drugs, as well as inattentive driving, such as talking and texting on the phone.
Sponsors include Ross-ford Fire and Rescue, Perrysburg Township Fire and Rescue, the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Life Flight, Sujkowski Funeral Home, and Ray's Service Center.
