A 19-year-old was killed and three 17-year-olds were seriously injured in a car wreck that occurred on Hollywood near Charleston Boulevard in Las Vegas, Nevada (NV).
Reports indicate a 17-year-old driver, with the 19-year-old as a passenger, lost control of their vehicle and slammed into another car carrying the other two 17-year-olds. We do not what exactly caused the at-fault driver to lose control of the vehicle. Were they distracted? Was there a mechanical issue? We will have to wait and see what the accident report reveals.
This is the 41st fatal car crash to occur in Las Vegas, according to fox5vegas.com. All of these car accidents are tragic, but it is especially difficult to read about four teenagers having their lives changed forever in a single wreck. My heart goes out to the family of the 19-year-old who was killed. Losing a child is a pain I wish no parent had to endure.
Let’s hope the three teens that survived will pull through and pick up the pieces after this ordeal.
