Western High Teens Headed to Their Prom Rescue Crash Victims

A bunch of teens from Western High in Davie were headed to their high school prom on Saturday night when they decided to stop off and become heroes first by rescuing seven people, including two children, from a van that had flipped over on I-595.

The teens, clad in tuxes and prom dresses and attire, were riding in their rented Cadillac Escalade, headed for the festivities, when they saw a Honda Odyssey swerve across them. The van veered out of control and slammed into a wall, flipping over onto the driver's side.
