‘Project Crash’ at Toms River High School South Raises Safety Awareness During Prom Season

(Trenton) - The Toms River Regional School System is going the extra mile when it comes to raising student safety awareness during the busy prom season. ‘Project Crash’ is a high impact presentation of a crash scenario involving students, adults, law enforcement and emergency medical personnel.

This morning on the High School South athletic field, actors portrayed a fatal crash scene, with two fatalities, injuries, and a DWI arrest. Nothing was spared in making this scenario ultra-realistic. Toms River Regional Schools has been presenting ‘Project Crash’ to its prom-bound seniors for ten years and they know how to reach their young audience. Tammi Comer Millar, public relations specialist for the school system says, “There’s hardly a dry eye in the bleachers when this presentation is over. The young adults learn that they are indeed mortal.”

Following the crash presentation, the students made their way to the cafeteria to hear a pair of speakers, State Police Sergeant First Class Paul Blanda, and a power point presentation by Joseph Aulisi who represents the Vehicular Homicide Unit of the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office.

Whether the issue is speeding, drunk driving, aggressive driving or any other deadly behavior, the Division of Highway Traffic Safety lauds the Toms River Regional School System and other schools with similar programs in this most important effort.
