Chesapeake, Va. - Grassfield High School students appeared to be getting the message of a Wednesday assembly.

The school and Chesapeake emergency responders went all out to show the students just what it looks like when a drunk driver hits and kills another.

The students are chosen at random to act out a crash where the only one not hurt is the drunk driver.

The students that were taken away from the scene will stay the night at a local hospital.

During that time, they will also write a farewell letter to their parents.
