Motor vehicle accidents are the number one killer of teenagers, and the chances of death only rise with more passengers in the vehicle. Driving becomes even more dangerous when these statistics are coupled with an unlicensed teen driver.

Such was the case on Tuesday afternoon in Indianapolis, Indiana, when a 14-year-old girl crashed a car injuring her and three passengers. According to WISHTV 8 News, the accident happened at around noon on Mickley Avenue. Witnesses stated that they saw the vehicle heading south down a large hill at a high rate of speed just before it crashed into a tree.

The impact pinned the passengers inside the wreckage, requiring bystanders to come to their aid. All four victims were transported to local hospitals where three of them remained in critical condition.

The driver was arrested shortly after checking out of the hospital and was charged with three counts of criminal recklessness causing serious bodily injury, and one preliminary count of operating a vehicle having never received a license. The District Attorney will finalize the charges as he sees fit at the conclusion of law enforcement’s investigation into the accident.

The Indianapolis Personal Injury Lawyers with Stewart and Stewart Injury Lawyers know just how dangerous speed can be when it comes to an Indiana Auto Accident. That is why the firm would like to remind parents to talk to their young drivers about the dangers of reckless driving.
