life to extract the “victims” from the
One of the victims, thrown from
the car during the wreck, was dead
before help could arrive.
The other two victims were care

the back of an ambulance.
The mock car wreck was spon

Neihardt Residence Halls to discour
age drunken driving.
“We tried to bring attention to the
drunk-driving problem,” said Ana
Campos, Neihardt residence director.
“It happens too often.”
After the demonstration, law
enforcement officials tried to bring
the scene home to students.
“This can happen to you,”
University Police Sgt. Larry

“You have to take an active role to
stop these accidents,” Kalkowski
