Clark County — People should not be alarmed by an abundance of emergency response vehicles outside Columbia River High School at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, because they are only part of a mock car crash to discourage teenage drinking, according to the Clark County Sheriff's Office.

The school is hosting a Stop Kids' Intoxicated Driving event in which actors play out a crash that results in injuries, one death and the arrest of a teenage drunken driver. Its hope is to prevent high school juniors and seniors from drinking, especially with prom, graduation celebrations and summer just around the corner.

The event is closed to the public. Columbia River High School is at 800 N.W. 99th St.
