Motor Vehicle Accidents Involving Teenage Drivers Resulting In Serious Injuries And Fatalities

 By: J. Hernandez
It is generally acknowledged that teenage drivers are at high risk of being involved in a motor vehicle accident. Almost every day there are reports of yet more accidents with teenage drivers. Many accidents have more than one teenager in a car. Many accidents have multiple victims. Many accidents include injured or killed pedestrians. Beneath we review recent accounts of 3 such incidents. In three of the crashes a person was killed.

In this report a motor vehicle accident was described in which the driver was a 16 year old who held a junior license which let the teenager to drive up to 9:00 in the evening. The incident, though, happened on a weekday after 9:00 p.m. The reason why is unclear but somehow the driver lost control of the car. As a result the car hit another vehicle and then struck a pedestrian. The pedestrian died from the injuries sustained in the accident. The pedestrian victim was waiting at a bust stop when the accident happened. The victim was a 65 year old man. The driver was arrested. He was charged with speeding, with manslaughter, and with criminally negligent homicide.

This motor vehicle accident involved an eighteen year-old driver who was driving while intoxicated. The motor vehicle accident took place before dawn on a Sunday. The greatest percentage of drunk driving accidents occur on weekend nights. As outlined by the report the victim in this situation was struck as he was crossing a road. The victim was a forty four year old male. The impact caused the pedestrian to endure serious head injuries. After 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 community at around 8:00 a.m. on a Sunday morning. The accident took place when the teenaged driver lost control of his vehicle. The car spun violently and then flipped over, struck the victim and slammed against a large tree in front of the house. The victim had just gotten out of his car to get 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 67 year old man did not survive the accident.

This motor vehicle accident involved a 19 year-old female driver also driving in a residential community. She struck a woman who was in front of her residence tending to her flower bed. The car hit her with such force that she was thrown nearly 150 feet into a truck parked in her driveway. The teenaged driver did not stop at the scene of the accident. The driver was arrested nearby approximately 30 minutes later as she was allegedly returning to the scene to take responsibility for 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 incidents involving a death the family of the victim suffers the loss of a loved one. Even the life of the teen driver is permanently changed. Yet, be it from speeding or from drunk driving these accidents continue to happen.
