Junkers needed

Each spring the Park City High School along with the PTSO holds a docu-drama for the senior class concerning drinking and driving risks. Student and parent actors, alongside local rescue crews will create life-like scenarios of drunken driving wrecks. Two wrecked cars are needed from the community to perform the mock accident, which takes place May 23. Towing is arranged by the school. It is preferable if the fire department can use the jaws-of-life to remove the door and extract the victims/actors from one of the vehicles.
