Harold Dennis, survivor, will be presenting from the documentary, “IMPACT: AFTER THE CRASH,” that explores the horrific Carroll County bus crash of May 14, 1988, that killed 27 people - mostly children - and injured nearly 35 others. It was the worst drunk-driving related accident in U.S. history. The documentary takes viewers back to that fateful night, including a dramatic recreation of the accident, and offers a stirring exploration of what it means to try to recover your life when, in an instant, everything is turned upside down.

With the crash site in such close proximity to our county, many of our local first responders were on the scene of the accident. Some will be in attendance that night to recount their experiences.

This presentation is brought to the community as part of National Red Ribbon Week (Oct. 23-31), sponsored by the National Family Partnership (NFP). Since its beginning in 1985, Red Ribbon Week has served as a catalyst to mobilize communities to provide substance abuse education and encourages participation in drug prevention actives.
