NORTH HAVEN — A dozen teens participating in an overnight camp for young people with limb loss and their families tried something new Wednesday: driving.

CorRales Dupree, 21, traveled from Richmond, Virginia to participate in Camp No Limits at Quinnipiac University. 

He got behind the wheel of a driving simulator, steering and engaging the gas and brake with his hands with the road before him on three screens. Later, he tested his vision like he was at the DMV.

Dupree has attended the camp the past thee years. Quinnipiac has hosted the camp since 2015.

The inspirational teenager learned the instrument after contracting a deadly virus which her parents originally thought was the flu at the age of eight.
