SOUTHFIELD, Mi (WXYZ) - "Seeing that kind of scared me" said Southfield High School senior Rockie Moore.
She was one of dozens of students in the audience while Southfield Police put on a demonstration in the parking lot that felt like real life.
Four students played victims in a mock drunk driving crash scene, designed to show the students the deadly consequences of drinking and driving.
"Hopefully they were able to ascertain ... able to grasp the concept that this is real life" said school liaison officer Jared Womble.
The program began in the school auditorium with a representatives from the Southfield Attorney's office and the Oakland County Prosecutor's office giving presentations about the legal ramifications of drinking and driving and possession of marijuana.
Then it moved out to the parking lot where a scene played out that was all too real for the graduating students, including those playing a role they never hope happens in real life.
"It was really a reality check that could really happen, you know it happens every day” said student actress Kyra Townsend.
