DuBois, PA – As families are preparing for prom, a dramatic mock car crash helped teach the students at the DuBois High School a valuable lesson about careless or impaired driving.

Dusan Ambulance helped set the scene, with two donated cars already smashed together when students walked out into the parking lot yesterday.

Prom committee volunteers acted as victims of the crash, showing injuries, a DUI arrest, and even a death.

Watch the full mock accident demonstration.
