DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - A group of 20 Western High School seniors won't soon forget the limo ride to their prom at a beach-side Fort Lauderdale hotel.
A minivan flipped over right in front of them as they traveled on Interstate 595 near Davie on Saturday evening. Officials say the van hit a concrete barrier while trying to avoid slowing traffic.
The limo driver and tuxedo and prom gown-clad students sprang into action, helping bloodied victims out of the crumpled van.
Student Peter Kim told Miami television station WPLG (http://bit.ly/YHXNtp ) that he went to the back of the van while limo driver Danny Izzi went to the front. He helped a little boy find his mother, who was desperately searching for him.
Once everyone was accounted for, the group continued on to the prom.
