Car accidents: Tragic crash claims the life of a teenager

It seems that roadways across the state of Delaware are becoming more and more dangerous every year. Unfortunately, most Delaware drivers will experience car accidents at some point in their lives. A recent crash in Smyrna claimed the life of a high school student and injured several others.

The accident happened at the intersection of Wheatley's Pond Road and Mount Friendship Road during the evening hours. According to reports, a sedan was facing westbound on Wheatley's Pond Road and was slowing to a stop in order to make a left turn on to Mount Friendship. Reports said the driver of a pickup truck traveling westbound on Wheatley's Pond failed to see the sedan and crashed into the car. Authorities said the right rear passenger in the sedan suffered very serious injuries and was rushed to a local hospital.

Tragically, he was later pronounced dead at the hospital. Reportedly, he was a 16-year-old local high school student. Reports said two other rear passengers in the sedan also suffered serious injuries and remained hospitalized. The driver of the pickup truck, driver of the sedan and a front-seat passenger in the sedan were all treated injuries not considered to be life-threatening, police said.

Driving is a necessity these days, but driving is also one of the most dangerous daily activities in the lives of Delaware citizens. Those who have suffered injuries or loss due to negligence in car accidents could benefit from discussions with a knowledgeable attorney. A lawsuit, if successful, could result in a substantial monetary award to help victims and families recover any financial losses.
