2 teens die in tragic car accident in Maury County

A number of teenage motorists display reckless driving behavior, which may be a result of their inexperience and inability to make quick decisions while behind the wheel. Many studies have shown that teenagers in Knox County and across the state are less likely to wear a seat belt and more likely to speed while driving, especially when there are other teenage passengers in the vehicle. Drug and alcohol use are also common factors in fatal car accidents involving teenage drivers.

Although it is still unknown as to whether drug and alcohol were involved in the accident, speeding and not wearing seat belts were found to play a role in a fatal auto accident in Maury County. The accident took the lives of two teenagers. The driver was found thrown from the vehicle as it flipped down a hill and smashed into a bridge wall. The passenger, on the other hand, was trapped within the burning automobile when the accident scene was discovered.

When Tennessee law enforcement officers investigated the tragic accident, they discovered that neither boy was wearing a seat belt. It was also alleged that the vehicle was speeding at the time of the accident. The driver, a 15-year-old boy, was thought to be speeding when as he took a curve in the road, and slid off to the side.

When teenagers make poor driving decisions, lives may be lost in a devastating car accident. A personal injury attorney may be able to help injured victims explore their legal options when it comes to engaging in an auto accident case.
