With the assistance of the Calvert Alliance Against Substance Abuse (CAASA), Maryland State Police, Chesapeake Region Safety Council, and several local volunteer emergency responders, a mock crash will be conducted at Calvert High School on Wednesday September 26th, 2018.

These tragedies continue to be the leading cause of death amongst young people. Sheriff Mike Evans stated, “We continue to take steps to reduce the accident numbers, but we need to continue to do more.” He added, “Education is the key to reducing these incidents.”
