Crash Sends Car Flying Into Front Yard

A teenager hurt in an accident continues to recover this morning. The force of the crash sent the car he was riding in, flying into a front yard, barely missing a house.

The accident happened just after midnight on Camelot Drive, near Wilson Downing.

Police tell 27 NEWSFIRST the teenage driver of the car thought he was going too fast, tried to brake, and lost control of the car. The driver told police his brakes locked.

The car hit a few trees, and went through a fence. It then went into the front yard of a home.

A passenger in the back seat went to the hospital, complaining of a leg injury.

Police say the three males inside the car at the time, are under 18 years old.

    Yeah, the drive was at fault, for whatever reason i dont know, but the one who got hurt didnt diserve it, I know these three well and the only one who made a mistake was the driver.

    If these were teenagers, why were they out on a school night after midnight anyway?

    Read the story again people. The real problem here is the three boys are all under the age of 18 and this happened just after midnight on a school night? I hold the parents responsible; if you can really call them parents.

    Good grief. So the kids that DO die in car wrecks DON'T have god looking out for them? I wonder why some do and some don't....

    At one time you couldn't get a driver's liscense until you turned 18. Wonder why in (edited)l that was!

    Just an observation, really. Has anyone else noticed the frequency of: apartment/house fires, cars flying through the air and hitting houses/fences, children dying at the hands of their parents? Unrelated topics, but, gee whiz, Y-T-D there seem to be these instances every week. Wonder why that is?
