Product Code: GH1527
Grade Level: 6-12
Media Type: DVD
Watching children play on a playground, it’s almost impossible to imagine that they may one day be killed by a drunk driver. It’s just as impossible to imagine you’re the driver. But every 30 minutes it happens to someone.* Russell Turner knows firsthand. His 19-year-old son, Jeremy, was killed instantly in a car accident involving a driver under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
Russell Turner shares his tragedy in DUI: Dead in 5 Seconds as a poignant reminder that driving under the influence is a choice. It’s a choice that has possible life-long consequences. Steven Leslie knows first-hand. He’s spending 17 years to life in prison for Jeremy’s death.
DUI: Dead in 5 Seconds is a realistic portrayal of drinking and its effects through a montage of images – some graphic – and interviews. Viewers will be moved by Steven Leslie’s candid comments and a reading of a remorseful letter to the victim’s family. Together, these glimpses into affected people’s lives make DUI: Dead in 5 Seconds a moving video you’ll never forget. That’s what Russell Turner wants because drunk-driving accidents are preventable.
