WALTHAM, MA - May 18, 2023 - Waltham High seniors will be attending their Senior prom next week, and each year the Waltham Fire Department puts on a mock crash involving two cars that hit head-on. The accident is caused by a drunk teen driver. Waltham Engine 7 Rescue 1 and Medic 1 respond, as well as Waltham Police. Senior students act out the consequences of such a crash in which one student is ‘killed’. Firefighters have to extricate one girl using the Jaws of Life. Several students are ‘sent’ to the hospital. The ‘dead’ girl is then removed by a local funeral home. The program, which has been going on for about 25 years, has made an impact on many students.
