If you are in Bloomington, Indiana, this will be happening on the 26th (WEDNESDAY.)
n Wednesday, March 26, IU-EMS and various other services/organizations
will display a mock drunk driving accident in Dunn Meadow from 12pm-3pm.
The "emergency response" will be activated at 1pm in which the local
ambulance service, fire department, and campus police will respond to
Dunn Meadows for a 2 vehicle collision involving multiple patients and
pedestrians. At 1:30pm, a medical helicopter will land in Dunn Meadow

In addition to the mock accident, we will have a drunk driving simulator

body) in which the driver wears virtual goggles that mimic their vision
at a certain blood alcohol content; drunk goggles are going to be
available for spectators as well as a field sobriety test; the U.S. Army
is anticipating on bringing a Hummer which has plasma TVs and XBOX
gaming systems; finally, there will be many free give aways to those who
