The annual “Living Proof “ reenactment was held April 5 and 6 at Muncie Central High School, including a fatal crash scene in Central’s parking lot. Despite the rain and wind, hundreds of volunteers and area residents attended. The event coincides with April’s designation as Alcohol Awareness Month, and is sponsored by the Delaware County Prevention Council (DCPC), along with dozens of other organizations and 150 volunteers.
“Living Proof” illustrates the dangers of drinking and driving during spring’s parties, graduation and prom. It is illegal to drink under the age of 21 in Indiana. “Living Proof” reminds parents and teens the consequences of drinking and driving series of realistic scenes at Muncie Central High School. It is also a reminder to parents hosting parties that those celebrations should be alcohol free for those under 21.
Delaware County PRIDE Team members portrayed teens impacted by alcohol abuse, but the majority of the actors at the event were actual police and fire department personnel, and other agencies, such as prosecutors, judges, attorneys, and EMS staff.
