Students at Douglas High School had a chance to participate in 'Freshman Impact' day.

The students watched as first responders and seniors acted out a mock car crash.

Rick McPherson with the Core Program says the goal of the simulation is to save lives by raising awareness of the gruesome reality of drinking and driving.

Students who participated Wednesday say this demonstration is a great way to show that one bad decision  could affect someone you know.

"I know friends that make the stupid decision, so fixing and trying to prevent these decisions will be beneficial in the long run," says Nathan Brown, senior.
 
"I think I'll certainly make better choices. I'll always have the people's stories in the back of my head," says Rebekah Nelson, freshman.

'Freshman Impact' will travel to twelve school districts in KOTA Territory.
