Employees from a local funeral home arrived on the scene to collect the body of the teen ─ portrayed by Brittany Agee ─killed on impact. FHP officers visited the girl's parents to deliver the news of her death.

The scenario portrayed a harsh reality, but students needed to understand their actions could have serious consequences, school officials said.

"The only thing you can do is make them aware, educate them, and they have to make them the right decisions," CHS assistant principal Dexter Day said. The Florida Highway Patrol and local first responders brought the program to the school’s attention.

"One bad decision not only affects you but (also) everybody involved," FHP Sgt. Ron Livingston said.

Students grew quiet during the testimonies ofAmy Jamieson and Lindy Bowman,mothers who lost their teenagers in DUI-related incidents.

Corbin Carroll, 17, noticed the crowd's reaction.

"I saw a lot of people upset," he said. "I don't think people should be drinking and driving because you can put other people's lives in danger ... one mistake can change your life."
