Each year the Cumberland County Health Department partners with local law and emergency officials to present a “Mock DUI” scene to Cumberland County and Stone Memorial High Schools the week of Prom. The scene shows the seriousness of a fatal accident, in a very realistic way. This year, Ruth Lucas says will be different. In the wake of Tuesday’s fatal car accident, which claimed the life of a CCHS Sophomore, the graphic scene will be omitted. Instead, Juniors and Seniors from the high schools will meet in the school cafeteria at CCHS tomorrow (Weds) and in the SMHS auditorium on Thursday. Meanwhile, grief counselors will continue to be placed at CCHS to help students cope with the loss of their classmate, 16 year old Allyn R Foster. Authorities say Foster’s vehicle was struck by an SUV as he pulled out onto Highway 70. The driver of the SUV and her two young passengers were transported to Cumberland Medical Center for treatment of their injuries
