CHESTER - Students in Orange County are learning about the dangers of drinking and driving.

Two cars full of prom goers crashed head on, leaving one dead and several injured, and one student under arrest in a mock scenario outside Chester Academy High School yesterday.

Officials hope it will make students think twice before getting behind a wheel after drinking. "Just seeing that, it really opened my eyes; it really opened by eyes to make [me] realize to make smart decisions. It was really scary," says student Angel Suarez.

Earlier this week, students also heard from a person who was behind the wheel in a fatal DWI crash.
