HYATTSVILLE, Md. -- Police across the DMV are hoping they don't come across a scene like the one that was intentionally set up for teenagers at Northwestern High School Monday.
With prom happening on Friday and graduation celebrations just around the corner the Hyattsville Police Department, Prince George's County Fire Department and others went all out to show hundreds of juniors and seniors the dangers of drunk driving.
Actors played the roles of crash victims and police took the driver of that staged scene through a field sobriety test before arresting her and putting her into the back of a squad car. Meanwhile another actor playing death hovered over the dead bodies before a hearse arrived to take them away.
