Statistically, young drivers are at higher risk of geting into an accident. Nearly every day there are reports of still more accidents involving teenage drivers. Many accidents involve several teenagers in a car. Many accidents have several victims. Many accidents involve injured or killed pedestrians. Beneath we summarize recent accounts of 3 such incidents. In three of the accidents someone died.
In this report a motor vehicle accident was described in which the vehicle was driven by a 16 year old who has a junior license which allowed the teenager to drive up to 9:00 pm. The incident, though, took place on a weekday after 9:00 p.m. The driver lost control of his car, hit another car, and then slammed into a 65 year-old male pedestrian who was waiting at a bus stop. The victim died from his injuries a short time after being hit. The driver suffered minor injuries. He was, however, arrested and charged with speeding, manslaughter, and criminally negligent homicide.
In this report the driver of the motor vehicle was a drunk eighteen year old male. The motor vehicle accident took place before dawn on a Sunday. Weekend evenings present the biggest risk for the occurrence of accidents involving drunk drivers. The driver hit a male pedestrian, 44 years of age, who was crossing a road. The impact caused the pedestrian to endure significant head injuries. Following the accident the teenage drunk driver was arrested and was charged with driving under the influence and with driving while intoxicated.
This motor vehicle accident involved an 18 year-old male driving in a residential area at approximately 8:00 a.m. on a Sunday morning. The accident took place when the teenaged driver lost control of his car. The car spun violently before it flipped over, hit the victim and slammed against a large tree in front of the house. The victim had just gotten out of his car to pick up a pamphlet from the front yard on a home which had a For Sale sign when he was struck by an out of control car. The pedestrian died from his injuries. He was 67 years old.
This motor vehicle accident involved a nineteen year-old female driver also driving in a residential area. The driver struck a woman who was in front of her house tending to her flower bed. The car hit her with such force that the woman was hurled nearly 150 feet into a truck parked in her driveway. The teenaged driver fled the scene of the accident. Nearly 30 minutes after the accident the police located the young driver and arrested her. They located her not far from the scene of the accident. She claimed she was going back to the scene to admit she had caused the accident.
Whenever I read a report of a new motor vehicle accident accident involving a teen driver my thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families. These types of accidents are true tragedies. Victims who survive the accident are often left with injuries that result in permanent disabilities. In cases involving a death the family of the victim suffers the loss of a loved one. Even the life of the teen driver is forever changed. Yet, whether it is from speeding or from drunk driving these accidents continue to happen.
At those times when these accidents do occur an experienced motor vehicle accident lawyer might be of great help to victims and the families of victims. The attorney can help them be heard, that their rights are protected and that all sources of potential recovery are completely pursued.
