A tragic car accident took the life of a teen driver, and injured four of his passengers last week when the teen bottomed out his Acura on a rural road, causing the car to spin out of control.
According to early reports, witnesses claimed the car was speeding extremely fast when they heard the car bottom out in a dip before twisting off the road, ejecting some of the five teens inside. Police estimate his speed to have been 85 mph, with a posted limit of 35 mph.
The driver was announced dead at the scene, while one of the male passengers was still in critical condition. Two female passengers were also transported to other hospitals with serious, but non life-threatening injuries.
