Students watch mock wreck as they make a Prom Promise

A Prom Promise presentation that featured a mock fatal DUI crash was held Wednesday at Clearwater High School's football field.

The Clearwater police and fire departments responded to Wednesday's mock crash as if it were real, though it was staged with wrecked cars while the school's drama students played patients and bystanders.

Firefighters performed extrications while a Bayflite helicopter arrived to evacuate one of the mock patients.

The performance was organized to urge high school students not to drink and drive on prom and graduation nights.
