What Happens When Teenage Drivers Hit Pedestrians And Catastrophically Injure Or Killed Them

 By: J. Hernandez
Statistically, young drivers are at higher risk of having an accident. Practically every day there are reports of still more accidents concerning teenage drivers. Many of these accidents have at least 2 teenagers in the vehicle, have multiple victims, and involve a hurt or killrf pedestrian. In what followes we review recent accounts of three such incidents. In 3 of the crashes someone was killed.

In this publication a motor vehicle accident was described in which the vehicle was driven by a sixteen year old who held a junior license which permitted the teenager to drive up to 9:00 pm. The incident, however, occurred on a weekday at a time later than 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 was arrested. He was charged with speeding, with manslaughter, and with criminally negligent homicide.

This motor vehicle accident was caused by an eighteen year-old driver who was driving while intoxicated. The car accident occurred on a Sunday morning at roughly 2:30. Weekend evenings pose the most significant risk for the occurrence of accidents involving drunk drivers. The driver struck a male pedestrian, 44 years of age, who was crossing a road. 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 area at about 8:00 a.m. on a Sunday morning. The accident occurred when the teenaged driver lost control of his vehicle. It turned forcefully and flipped, hitting a pedestrian who had just left his car in order to get a pamphlet from the front yard of one of the homes. The home was for sale and had a sign and the pamphlets in the front yard. After hitting the victim the car continued until it was finally stopped by slamming into a tree in front of the house. The man died from his injuries. He was sixty seven years old.

This motor vehicle accident involved a nineteen year-old female driver also driving in a residential community. She 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 thrown nearly 150 feet into a truck parked in her driveway. The teenaged driver did not stop at the scene of the accident. Nearly 30 minutes after the accident the police found the young driver and placed her under arrest. They located her not far from the scene of the accident. She stated she was going back to the scene to admit she had caused the accident.

On a personal level it is sad to have to read about these accidents. These types of incidents are true tragedies. Victims who survive the accident are often left with injuries that result in irreversible 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 forever changed. But, whether it is from speeding or from drunk driving these accidents continue to happen.

When these accidents do take place an experienced motor vehicle accident lawyer may be of great help to victims and the families of victims. The lawyer can help them be heard, that their rights are protected and that all sources of possible recovery are thoroughly pursued.
