Mock Crash at Clarksville Academy Sports Complex

On Wednesday, March 29 the Clarksville Police Department in conjunction with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department, Clarksville Fire & Rescue, Montgomery County EMS, and a Vanderbilt Life-flight team staged a mock crash and demonstrated their response to a multiple-fatality crash scene at the Clarksville Academy Sports Complex on Highway 48/13. Clarksville Academy 10th - 12th grade students were on hand to witness the response. About 100 CA students were in attendance, several of whom played the roles of accident victims. Joanne Askew, Director of Challenge Based Learning said, “One Friday per month the students go to a different class format. This is the transportation group. It has focused on distracted driving with a campaign called ‘Be In The Zone - Put Up Your Phone.’ They are doing the crash scene, and they even did the 911 call so the students can see how it all works.”
