Speed Factors Into Crash That Killed Teen

Teen and young adult drivers have caused more auto accidents than any other age group. They are not only inexperienced, but their immaturity makes them more likely to take risks behind the wheel. A speeding driver, especially and inexperienced one, is less able to negotiate turns and to steer around hazards. The faster a vehicle is going, the longer it will take to slow down or stop. It only takes one moment of inattentiveness at just the wrong time for an accident to occur.

An 18-year-old female was killed in a car crash after the driver lost control at a curve in the road. The vehicle slammed through three trees, a light pole, and a residential gate before coming to a rest in the front of a home. The woman was a backseat passenger in a silver Porsche driven by another teen. The driver and a front seat passenger were taken to a local hospital with head injuries. No other cars were involved in the crash. Key Biscayne police believe speed was a contributing factor. An investigation is ongoing.

Every year thousands of young adults die in traffic accidents-often as a result of the driver’s excessive speed, lack of experience, or inattention. They leave us shaking our heads because we know these types of crashes are preventable. If a lawsuit is pursued, waiting for a settlement can take a long time, putting the family in financial ruin.
