Sarah Panzau uses humor to speak to teens about a topic very un-humorous -- drunk driving.

On Aug. 23, 2003, Panzau went out for a night of drinking only to nearly kill herself in a one-car accident. The resulting list of medical ailments was two pages long.


In a presentation of pictures, Panzau comes out on the stage in a tank top and shorts and asks the students of Perham High School to take a good look at the item wrapped in a sheet lying on the stretcher next to her.
