Students at Catoosa High School gathered Thursday to learn about the dangers of drinking and driving.

Officials simulated a two-car rollover accident that left four people hurt. The mock crash came the day before Catoosa's prom, hoping to get kids to think before getting behind the wheel after they have been drinking. John Young with Gold Cross Ambulance, "We're hoping to get word to the students drinking and driving and this is what could happen. If we can keep one student from not driving tomorrow night at their prom, we're going to feel like we accomplished what we want."

The event was put on by Mother's Against Drunk Driving, Catoosa Schools and Gold Cross Ambulance Service.
