Rochelle Community Hospital and several local agencies teamed up Thursday to give Rochelle Township High School students a first hand look at how driving while intoxicated or texting can affect lives.
Hospital emergency room nurses and technicians played victims in a car crash reenactment. After the crash, response included police, a sobriety test, a rescue using the "jaws of life", and a helicopter response. The mother of a teenage victim spoke to students. Illinois State Police also brought a simulator showing the results of driving without a seat belt.
Students got a chance to take to emergency personnel and counselors were on hand.
