Camilla-  Mitchell County students saw first hand Thursday the consequences of drinking and driving.

Driving Intoxicated Ends in Death or DIED used students from the Mitchell County Youth Advisory Council to set up a mock crash Thursday morning. Lonnie Clark, a retired firefighter said in 29 years he's pulled at least 300 teenagers out of wreckage worse than this and he hopes students learn a lesson from his demonstration.

"When they actually see what happens and what can happen it only takes a split second for somebody to lose their life because they wanted to party and I'm only 62 year old and I know telling kids not to drink ain't going to happen," said Lonnie Clark Sr. DIED Organization Founder.

"It makes you think about whether or not you want to drink the alcohol and or whether or not you want to smoke the marijuana and that's one of the consequences so it makes you think about different things that can happen just that quick," said Elliott Walker, Mitchell County Youth Advisory Council President.

They hope students remember these images as they head to prom this weekend.
