Excessive speed kills two teens in tragic one-car accident
Posted on November 19th, 2009 by Zane Cagle
After conducting an investigation, authorities indicated that excessive speed was the cause behind a one-car accident that killed two teenagers, ages 15 and 17, last week in New York, devastating the youths’ family and friends just two weeks before the start of the holiday season. The Police made it clear that neither alcohol nor drugs were a factor, but it was clear that the male driver was driving too fast for the winding, rural road and lost control, skidding into a water-filled ditch and overturning into a tree. The impact of the car striking the tree killed the two teens in the front of the car. A third passenger, another 17 year old male, suffered head injuries and was airlifted to a hospital in Albany. Fortunately, he was released the next day. Car accidents are one of the leading causes of death among teens in the country and are often caused by a variety of factors.
