As seniors entered the school parking lot with snow flurrying above and the deafening roar of chatter, the wind carried a beer can across the ground, eerily symbolic of the dramatic scene behind it.
Two cars, both carrying Red Lion seniors, were totaled in the middle of the lot.
Drops of blood were dripping down the cars and glass was shattered at the feet of seniors trapped in the cars, which were piled on top of each other
As paramedics and firefighters arrived, students were cut out of the cars, and some that couldn’t be saved were laid under sheets.
As the dramatic tableau unfolded, the booming sound of students talking over each other was drowned out by sirens, and the voice of senior Quinn Waldrup shouting, “What did I do?”
However, this dramatic crash happens every year at Red Lion in the same lot, only with different students.
