JACSON PARISH, La. (KNOE 8 News & Jackson parish Hospital) - Jonesboro Hodge High School students got a sobering lesson, outside the classroom, Thursday.

Jackson Parish Hospital School Based Health Center in conjunction with Jonesboro Hodge High School hosted a mock car crash Thursday.

The incident was staged to bring attention to the students the effects of drinking while driving and texting while driving.

The hospital and school felt, with prom season and graduation the timing of the message was perfect.
