KENNESAW — Distracted driving, which includes a range of behaviors such as texting and driving, is the leading cause of death for young drivers, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Kennesaw State tackles the issue head on Friday with “Ghost Out Dangers of Distracted Driving.”

The simulated re-enactment of a vehicle crash will be staged on the Campus Green from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday.

More than three dozen students, emergency responders and administrators will transform the area near the KSU Convocation Center into the site of a fatal vehicle collision. Actors will be covered in fake blood and theatrical make-up to heighten the effect. To add to the realism, a medical team in a helicopter will land at the scene to render aid during the rescue operation. KSU’s Phi Eta Sigma National Honor Society and Student Success are partnering during National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week.
