Prom Promise event at Daniel Boone High School

Posted: Updated:
 A lot of area high schools are having proms this weekend, and some schools want to make sure that students know the dangers of drinking and driving.

The sounds of sirens filled the air at Daniel Boone High School this morning, as  community leaders held a "Prom Promise" event.

The scenario...a drunk student has an accident with a motorcycle.

The Senior class was then shown how an accident like this, is handled by law enforcement and emergency personnel.

The injuries and deaths may have been fake, but at least one student hopes his classmates take the message of this "Prom Promise" re-enactment to heart.

"You know... the dangers of actually drinking and driving...what can really happen...what happens to so many teens all over the world...not just here. It's just to get this out and let everybody know you shouldn't drink and drive.",said Daniel Boone Senior Sam Stewart.

Last year, stats show that 60% of all accidents involving teen drivers were due to alcohol consumption.
