CANEY CREEK STUDENTS PARTICIPATE N SHATTERED LIVES PROGRAM

Just about 9 am Wednesday Caney Creek Firetrucks, MCHD ambulances and DPS Troopers were seen running with lights and sirens to Caney Creek High School. The reason was a major accident involving several vehicles including a motorcycle. This, however, was a staged event for the presentation of the Shattered Lives of Montgomery County Program. The program uses crashed vehicles from former crash scenes. Students are selected from the school to be used as victims. These students then go to makeup which makes injuries which a person would suffer in a real accident look lifelike. The students are then set in and around the vehicles in the staged crash. The entire student body and the parents watch as the crash scene plays out. Firefighters use their tools to cut victims from vehicles. Medics work on patients as they would on a real crash scene and local funeral homes respond with body cars to pick up the deceased victims. Those victims are actually put in body bags and put into the body cars. Some of the injured are transported to local hospitals and when fog is not present Air Medical normally responds to transport patients. As crews work on victims DPS Troopers do field sobriety tests on would be impaired drivers which caused the crash. They are arrested and transported to jail. The hope is to open students eyes to the dangers of drinking and driving and texting and driving. Shattered lives will present the program in March at Magnolia and April in Montgomery.
