Staged tragedy at the Kimball High School

This mock accident scene was a collaborative effort between Kimball Public Schools, local law enforcement agencies, The Nebraska State Patrol, Kimball Health Services, Regional West, Kimball Volunteer Fire Department and Western Nebraska Community College. As the Kimball student body looks on Deven Gardner, kneeling, checks on Carli Wurdeman while Madison Wynne lies partially ejected from one of two vehicles involved in the staged tragedy. Not shown are Nicholas Thomas-Lewis, Kennedy Lewis and Jaden Mohr.

A dramatic representation of a two-vehicle accident was staged for the students of Kimball High School on Tuesday, April 4.

"Every 15 Minutes Program," is a national program used to dramatically instill in students the potentially dangerous consequences of impaired and distracted driving.

Just prior to witnessing the dramatized accident, students at Kimball High School heard a multimedia presentation by a former Nebraska State Trooper.

Following the mock accident, students were debriefed by trained Regional West Medical Center staff, a minister and a trauma surgeon.

The timing of the presentation comes just as Kimball juniors and seniors prepare for prom and carries with it an impactful message for that reason.
