Students Headed To Prom Help Crash Victims

DAVIE, Fla. (May 15, 2013)--Twenty Florida high school seniors won't soon forget the limo ride to their prom at a beach-side hotel.

A minivan overturned right in front of them Saturday as they traveled on Interstate 595 near Davie on Saturday evening.

Officials say the van hit a concrete barrier as the driver tried 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.
