The life of a 19-year-old girl was taken in a two-car accident that took place on Linville Road in Oak Ridge, North Carolina (NC). The crash happened when her boyfriend, who was driving, went off on the right side of the road. He overcorrected and slammed into a Dodge pickup truck.
Four other people were injured in the crash. Three of the victims were taken toMosesConeHospital. According to My Fox 8, speed was a factor in the accident. While alcohol was ruled out as a factor, the girl’s father did find empty bottles of liquor underneath the seats of the civic.
My deepest condolences go out to the victim’s father and the rest of her family. It’s truly heartbreaking when a young life, full of promise, is lost because of the reckless decisions of a driver.
The girl’s father is sending a message out to teenagers with the goal that if they see the pictures of this horrific wreck, they will exercise more caution on the road.
