Each spring, the Lake County Coroner, in conjunction with local law, fire and emergency medical personnel, conduct Pre-Prom Demonstrations at local high schools. Crash re-enactments are presented to junior and senior students to demonstrate the tragic results that occur when a person drinks alcohol or uses drugs. Student volunteers portray accident victims, while emergency personnel demonstrate their procedures for accident scenes.
Speakers detail the devastation and loss that is felt by victims’ families and encourage students to make responsible decisions as they enter adulthood.
The photos below were taken at Round Lake High School. Please be aware that although these photos depict students acting as accident victims, they may be disturbing to some. You may double click on the photos to open them in another window. Round Lake High School
