A message for prom night


While juniors and seniors at Peck High School watched from a distance, a mock two-car crash
unfolded on the high school grounds Thursday two days before prom, a traditional night for
drinking and driving. The drivers and passengers were all high school students in the scenario
in which a drunk driver hit a second car, causing one fatality and four injuries. Responding to the
scene were the Elk and Speaker township fire departments, Peck police and sheriffs department,
Sanilac and Marlette EMS, and Tri-Hospital EMS. Its great to see the community come together
for the kids, said Elk Township fireman Adam Bullock, who organized the event. If one or two
students got the message, weve done our job.
