"How To Deal" (2003)

Mandy Moore's character Halley goes to one of those slightly-too-wild-and-therefore-kind-of-uncomfortable high school parties, where she obviously doesn't fit in. Instead of going home, she decides to go all the way with her pseudo-boyfriend, only to bail at the last minute and run out madly into the snow. New Year's tidings? Pretty terrible. Pseudo boyfriend wrecks the car while driving Halley home, dumps her at the hospital, and hits the road.
