Weirton Madonna High School tried something new to go along with its mock crash this year.

For the first time, the fictional scenario included a fatality. Students watched their classmates act out a two-car accident.

Local first responders dismantled the vehicles and extracted the victims. It also served as a training exercise for the crews. But mostly, it's to teach teen drivers to make smart decisions.

“It really shows you how you don't want to ruin your life by drinking and driving and facing charges of killing someone injuring someone and how it could really ruin you and someone else,” said Mallory Santoro, the school’s SADD vice president.

The scenario continues Friday, when the students experience the mock trial of the at-fault driver. That's part is also new this year.
