JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Students at one Region 8 High School are taking matters in their own hands, forcing fellow classmates to take a good look at the consequences of drinking while driving.

EAST lab students at Valley View High School put on a "mock car wreck" with the help of local emergency responders.

More than 700 students got a realistic look at what could happen when someone decides to behave irresponsibly.

"When they see the cars wrecked and their peers are in those wrecked cars hurt, even though it is just make believe, it kind of sends the message maybe I ought to think twice before I drink and drive." said Toni Hall, EAST Facilitator for Valley View High School.

Senior Ashley Carter says she hopes fellow students realize the impact something like this can have. ""I hope they see how this can affect their friends, family and just everyone around them."

The Jonesboro Police Department, Fire Department, Medic One and Air Evac representatives participated in the mock scene.
