For the last seven years, the partnership between Louisiana State Police and Rapides Trauma Center has allowed Sudden Impact to do two mock crashes a year and two mock trials.
The mock crash includes a fatal head-on collision caused by a drunk driver.
Students watched their fellow classmate go to jail, as well as the pain from the mother and friends of their deceased classmate.
Local professionals joined the staged crash to make the lesson as authentic as possible.
The next sudden impact event will be a mock trial Monday at Menard High School.
