Richland County's 24th annual Mock Crash is staged Tuesday morning in front of the grandstand at the fairgrounds.

The rehearsal was held Monday, with participants discussing how the docudrama will unfold, and the injured drivers practicing their screams of agony.

The Mock Crash serves as a warning for how a happy prom night can become the worst night of a teen's life through recklessness.

This year's crash stresses the importance of staying off the cell phone while driving.

4-H Youth Safety Council Advisory Judy Villard-Overocker says the scenario is two carloads of teens are going to a friend's house for an after-prom party.  They're drunk, speeding, and the drivers are texting back and forth.

As the side-by-side racing cars round a curve, one slams head-on into another car carrying sober and innocent prom-goers, killing one.  The other car hits a pole.  

The Mock Crash ends with the traditional funeral scene.

An added twist this year is a courtroom scene with Juvenile Court Judge Ron Spon holding the two drunk drivers accountable for their crime.

1,250 students from nine high schools will see Tuesday's Mock Crash, bringing the total number to more than 37,000 since its inception in 1990.
