LAFAYETTE, LA (KADN) — The Sudden Impact program was held at Women and Childrens Hospital today with the help of Troop I State Police.
Sudden Impact is a statewide program led by the State Police seeking to rduce the number of accidents involving minors that result in serious injury or fatality. We spoke with students about what kind of impact this program had, and what they will do differently as a result.
“[It showed me] how real it all is and how quick things can happen, and the effects it has on people and my parents,” says Juliet Mills, student at Ascension Episcopal School.
“Definitely get off my phone. You make that decision, oh I’ll check that one text, and it takes that one text to change your life,” says student Victoria Dore.
Sudden Impact is designed to be a school-based intervention program. Schools interested in participating and parents interested in having their child’s school participate in the Sudden Impact program are urged to call Katie Broussard at Womens and Childrens at (337) 521-9312.
