Juneau high school students are getting an important first hand lesson in the dangers of drinking and driving.
Last June, shortly after graduating from Juneau Douglas High School, Taylor White went to a bonfire party out the road. At some point he and some friends decided to go for a drive. Tyler Emerson was at the wheel of his 1999 Audi, travelling in excess of 80 miles per hour, when he lost control and crashed into some trees. Both Emerson and White were thrown from the vehicle. Emerson survived. White did not.
The Taylor White Foundation — set up by White’s parents, Kevin and Carol — has produced a short documentary about the accident, which was shown to students at Thunder Mountain High School yesterday (Wednesday). Casey Kelly has more.
