Just a few days before their prom, upperclassmen at Weir High School were warned of the dangers of drinking and driving, and witnessed the possible results of such a decision.
While the school’s juniors and seniors watched, one of their classmates was taken into custody by Weirton Police after admitting to drinking and driving. One other was being treated for injuries. Another two were pronounced dead at the scene.
The mock accident scenario was put together as part of the school’s prom week activities, and included discussions on drinking and driving and distracted driving.
