Teen driver accidents: 3 teens hospitalized after accident

Teenagers have relatively little experience driving on Massachusetts roadways. As a result, there are many precautions taken in order to help prevent teen driver accidents. For example, state law prohibits junior operators from having other minors in the car with them unless there is an adult over the age of 21 present in the vehicle. Despite this law, police claim that a teenage driver had two other teenagers with him when a fiery crash occurred that sent three people to the hospital.

The accident happened at approximately 10:30 p.m. one night in early May. Witnesses claim that the car was traveling at a high rate of speed on the wrong side of the road prior to the accident. According the reports, the car struck a utility pole before catching fire.

All three occupants, including the 17-year-old driver and two 16-year-old passengers, were transported to an area hospital for treatment. While they are expected to survive, their conditions are unclear. Police also claim they discovered a small quantity of marijuana of the car, but it is unclear if the driver was under the influence at the time of the accident. The accident remains under investigation, and the driver could face several charges.

The families of the injured passengers could be facing difficulty paying medical bills created by injuries suffered in the car accident. Many victims of teen driver accidents file a personal injury claim in a Massachusetts civil court. An experienced attorney can help identify all parties deemed responsible in such a case and seek to have them held accountable by attempting to prove negligence.
