The Guthrie FFA sponsored the exercise in conjunction with the upcoming prom on April 28.

The drill involved the Guthrie Police Department, Guthrie Fire Department, Mercy Hospital, Air Evac, Smith-Gallo Funeral Home, Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Logan County Sheriff’s Office and Bowman’s Wrecker.

The event helped bring awareness to the dangers of driving under influence.

The accident was staged for a two-vehicle accident with five teens in one vehicle and a school teacher in another vehicle.

One teen was seen ejected from the vehicle, one teen taken to a medical helicopter, one student and a teacher taken in an ambulance and a teen driver arrested at the scene.
