Prom: It’s a night you’ll never forget ... especially if your limo gets repossessed while you’re heading into the big dance. That’s what happened to a group of high school students in Oklahoma on Friday, who thought their ride was being carjacked when it was driven away by someone other than the driver, the AP reports. “We were like wow this is crazy,” one of the students teen-speaks to KTUL.

A parent who was in the same parking lot followed the limo and called 911; police arrived and straightened things out, though the kids were stuck finding another ride home. The owner of the limo company calls it a miscommunication and says he’ll give the students a partial refund or free rental.
