FREDERICKTOWN — In a mock crash simulation at Fredericktown High School, four people “died” and six others were “injured” as the result of a multiple car crash on prom night.

That was the scenario Tuesday, just in time for this weekend’s real prom night. What (hypothetically) happened was, two vehicles with multiple high school students were on their way to the prom.
