ST. CLOUD - Distracted or drunk driving can quickly turn a magical night into a lifelong nightmare - and that's the message a group of Tech High School students sent to their peers today during a mock car crash demonstration.

Students Against Destructive Decisions group leader Brandon Cash says the mission is to remind the students in advance of Saturday's prom.

Six hundred students participated in the event, attending a presentation by the State Patrol and a paraplegic prior to crash demonstration. St. Cloud police, paramedics and firefighters were on hand as well to show a lifelike rescue situation.

Check out this video of highlights from the impactful event.
