DAVIE, Fla. (AP) – A group of 20 Florida high school seniors won’t soon forget the limo ride to their prom at a beach-side 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 students, all wearing tuxedoes and prom gowns, sprang into action to help bloodied victims out of the crumpled van.
Student Peter Kim told Miami television station WPLG
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.
