DALLAS — L.D. Bell High School student Ben Ross recently survived a serious accident.

On Saturday night, he still made it to his prom in the vehicle of his dreams — a giant hot dog.

Ross was seriously injured while riding his motorcycle last month. While at his hospital bedside, his mom remembered Ben joking about going to the prom in the "Weinermobile."

So she launched an online campaign and convinced Oscar Mayer to send the distinctive hot dog-shaped vehicle to take Ben and girlfriend Molly Muchow to Saturday's prom at the Dallas Trade Center.
