‘Smashed’ videos target would-be drink drivers (updated)

The first in a series of four videos that charts the response to a fatal crash from the 999 call to the knock at the parents’ door.

Following Saturday’s launch of the Hampshire Constabulary’s anti-drink drive campaign, from today they will be releasing a series of videos highlighting the dangers of drink driving.

The first one up features Sergeant Jay Hewes of Hampshire Constabulary’s Roads Policing Unit.

He talks about his experience at the scene of a fatal drink-drive crash as part of the force’s Christmas drink-drive campaign ‘Smashed’.

The second video is of paramedic Kate McDougall from South East Coast Ambulance Service. She was at the scene on the night of the collision and attended both the deceased driver and the injured van driver.

The third video features Watch Manager Craig Gregory of Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service talks about his experience at the scene of a fatal drink-drive crash.

In this last video, the young driver’s father talks about the moment officers arrived on his doorstep to tell him his daughter has been killed.
