Creswell participates in Every 15 Minutes Program

The Grim Reaper (played by Deputy Shrives) steps onto the scene as smoke emanates from the mock crash. The Grim Reaper is not only used for the mock car crash, but also to pull high school students from their classrooms every 15 minutes to symbolically show the fatality rate from drunk driving crashes.
