The crash is only a simulation orchestrated by 'In Just 3 Seconds' to educate the community on the realistic consequences of drinking and driving.
Eight agencies were called to the scene including Green Mountain Falls Police and Fire Departments, El Paso Sheriff's Department, Cascade Fire Department, Flight for Life, Ute Pass Ambulance service, El Paso Coroner, and the towing company, and this is exactly what happens in a real-life situation.
James Forrest from In Just 3 Seconds says, " Three seconds is how long it takes you to take your eyes off the road and cause a possibly life threatening crash."
The next mock crash date has not been set, but is in the works. To learn more about the organization, visit http://just3seconds.org/
