Mock Accident Focuses On Prevention In Clay County

An eastern Kentucky high school is focusing on accident prevention after the loss of several students in one school year...

Faculty and students at clay county high school gathered today to learn about safety after four students died in ATV and car accidents during this school year alone.
Today's motto was prevention and how the teens are responsible for their own safety.

"So if we educate our children," says Parent Stephania Gregory. "Maybe in the future we won't have to go through this again."

"I had one friend killed on a 4-wheeler, I don't want to have anymore," says Eleventh Grader Cameron Rice

The child fatality review board organized the event.
Through a mock ATV accident, students were taught to wear helmets and never ride with a passenger .... and they were reminded to always wear their seat-belt in a vehicle.
