Students get emotional perspective into consequences of distracted driving


A distracted driving event gave MFL MarMac high school students an emotional perspective into the consequences of texting and driving and driving at excessive speeds. The day included viewing this Camaro involved in a July 2022 crash that killed three Dubuque teenagers. (Photos by Audrey Posten)

A mock accident simulated the potential result of texting and driving. Marti Post, a member of the ambulance service and Crossing Rivers Health employee, talked viewers through what was happening.

Firefighters used jaws of life and other equipment to peel apart the vehicles, while EMTs and paramedics removed the individuals from inside.

Noah Goltz, an MFL MarMac student and Monona junior firefighter, works on one of the vehicles involved in the mock accident.

Aside from the fire chief and a fellow firefighter who provided the vehicles, Jeremy Schellhorn, a Monona firefighter and one of the event organizers, said first responders knew little about the mock accident scenario beforehand. “The only thing the guys know right now is we’ll be calling them out. The only thing EMS knows is I want both units and three EMTs in each. It will be true and accurate to how we do a scene,” he said prior to the event.

Students watched as Gundersen Air landed on the MFL MarMac football field.

MFL MarMac Mental Health Specialist Jessica Goltz and High School Principal Larry Meyer helped organize the distracted driving event.

Iowa State Trooper Eric Payne, a collision reconstructionist, detailed his response to a July 2022 crash in Dubuque, involving excessive speed, that claimed the lives of three teenagers.

The families of Kennedy Elskamp and Chloe Lucas played an integral role in last week’s event, hoping to raise awareness and save lives. It was their first time speaking in front of a student body.

After listening to speakers, students attended four breakout sessions. At one, Marti Post and Ben Harris from Crossing Rivers Health explained what happens at the emergency room when a traumatic event occurs.

Iowa State Trooper Boyd Eser was part of a breakout session that detailed the legal, financial and insurance ramifications of distracted driving.

Iowa Department of Public Safety Therapy K9 Matt Pickles was a popular attendee at the distracted driving event.
