Teen Causes Family to Lose Multiple Members In One Car Accident

Car accidents happen every day, multiple times day. From fender benders to fatal accidents, if you were to stop and consider the risk you take every day on the road you may never drive again. Let alone, hand your child the keys to a car. So, we don’t think about the risk. We understand that there is a risk, but we do what we can to ensure that we are not driving in a reckless way to create more risk. We learn to become a defensive driver. We learn how to drive in inclement weather and through experience, we become experts in rain or snow. Yet, no matter how good of a driver we are, there is always a chance that we become part of an accident.

Young drivers are more likely to get into an accident as well as get a ticket. In 2016, 2,433 drivers between the ages of 16-19 were killed in a car accident. An even larger number of teens were sent to the emergency room, 292,742 to be exact. To bring it into perspective, every day 6 teens died due to car accidents. Now, this doesn’t mean that these teens were responsible for their own deaths. The data does not suggest the cause of the accident, just that teens are more likely to underestimate a dangerous situation. This could be because they are inexperienced or they are more distracted. Regardless, teen drivers can be reckless and cause harm to anyone at any age.

The Heart Breaking Tale

Barely into the second month of 2019 when tragedy struck the community near San Diego. A family of 6 were driving a Mazda through an intersection. The Mazda had the right of way. A truck ran the light and sideswiped the Mazda causing it to violently spin. Two passengers were ejected from the car. Three passengers of the Mazda were killed: two on the scene and one after being taken to the hospital. The other three, including a 13-year-old girl, were seriously injured, but they are able to recover from their injuries. The driver of the truck who hit the Mazda was a 19-year-old male.

The 19-year old was arrested and charged with seven felonies. Witnesses stated that the 19-year old male did not try to break before the busy intersection. Unscathed, after the accident happened the young man did nothing to help those who were in the Mazda.
