WOLF LAKE, IL (KFVS) - Students at Shawnee High School learned firsthand how dangerous it can be to drive under the influence.
Wednesday morning, the prom committee participated in a mock crash depicting injuries and fatalies.
The grim reaper also took students from classes to represent area traffic deaths from the last few years.
"Wait to text because that's a major thing and just drive safe," said one student. "Stick with the speed limit and stick with just the major laws out there."
"It didn't seem real at all because you don't ever picture yourself ever being on a stretcher and when you do it doesn't even feel like it should be," said another student.
Coordinators say they hope students and other drivers learn the important of driving safe.
