College kids in Crookston are hoping to show their fellow students the dangers of drunk driving. A crumpled Minnesota State Patrol car greeted students at the University of Minnesota Crookston student union Wednesday. It's part of National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week. The patrol car was hit by a drunk driver at nearly 70 miles an hour. That, and other displays are designed to show students how one mistake could have serious consequences.

Alexmai Addo of University of Minnesota-Crookston said, " I think that some people do and some people don't. Some people go 'oh I just had a few drinks. I'm ok' and get behind hte wheel of a car, and dont' realize the consequences of that one mistake."

Other events throughout the week are designed to help students make the good choice when it comes to alcohol, including, teaching students alcohol-free drink recipes.
