Students at Derby College, Ilkeston, see the devastating effects of a car crash in this mock-up by town police.

MORE than 100 teenagers witnessed a hard-hitting demonstration of a car crash this week.

Emergency servicemen showed students the serious consequences of dangerous driving in the grounds of Derby College, Ilkeston, cutting the roof of a vehicle in a mock crash.

Ilkeston PCSO Jennifer Hobson said: “We hope the youngsters learnt something from this today.

“All too often many drivers especially the young think they are invincible behind the wheel but there is so much responsibility as a driver and passenger.”
