Informing students and saving a life. That's the goal of a new exhibit unveiled at Eastridge High School Thursday.
The powerful exhibit called, "One Second, Everything Changes" shows the negative impacts of driving under the influence of drugs. It tells the story of two students from Eastridge who lost their lives in a drugged driving crash six years ago.
One of the students' parents spoke about the importance of educational exhibits like this.
"Going through the schools, if it touches one life, it's one life that we save and one family that will not have to go through what we have been through in six years."
The exhibit features artifacts from the victims, statements from the victims' family and friends and local media coverage from after the crash.
