Dracut High School "Prom Week" got off to a sobering start with a reminder about the dangers of impaired driving.
The DHS Peer Mentors organized a mock car accident, which took place Monday with the help of Dracut Police and Fire personnel.
Members of the Class of 2018 acted in the dramatization, which portrayed the results of a fatal drunk driving crash. Some of those in the vehicle were injured, some killed, and the driver arrested and taken away in handcuffs in the back of a cruiser.
The objective of the mock crash is to make clear to students the consequences that can arise from driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol, even once.
Photos of the very realistic scene were posted on the Dracut High School Twitter account. They can be viewed below.
