Tragedy of teenage car accidents once more evident

Teenagers are just starting out life and have so much to live for. This is why it seems so much more tragic when teenage lives are disrupted, and maybe forever changed, due to car accidents. A recent car crash during the early hours of a Friday in October once again highlights the tragedy of it all.

California authorities received reports of someone driving poorly between 4:00 and 4:30 a.m. They dispatched officers to the scene, who then came upon an accident between two vehicles. It was found that two teenagers, both 18 years of age, were driving southbound in the fast lane of a northbound lane.

The car driven by one of the 18-year-olds crashed into a northbound Nissan. The 41-year-old female driver of the Nissan, as well as both the teenagers, suffered serious injuries. The 18-year-old driver was arrested and will have to face criminal charges once she has recovered from her injuries. The investigating team is looking into the possibility of drugs or alcohol as a contributing factor to the accident.

California civil laws allow for victims seriously injured in car accidents to file a personal injury claim against a reckless or negligent driver. Should it be proved that driver negligence was the root cause of the accident, financial damages may be awarded by a court of law. In this instance, the owner of the car, if it is not the 18-year-old, may also have to answer to charges of negligence. An award made by a court can alleviate the burden that unexpected medical costs may place on the seriously injured victims and their families.
