Distracted-driving event coming to PBL on Wednesday

PAXTON — Gibson Area Hospital & Health Services will present a program Wednesday at Paxton-Buckley-Loda High School that warns of the dangers of distracted driving — just in time for PBL’s prom.

The program is being presented from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the school in Paxton.

The program is an anti-texting and distracted driving multi-media event that features video presentations coupled with two multi-million-dollar texting and driving simulation experiences. Even an actual casket is displayed to drive home the permanent reminder of the life-changing impact of distracted driving.
