Six teenagers suffered serious injuries when a SUV they were travelling in crashed on September 15‚ 2010 in the Pine Valley area of San Diego County around 3:00 p.m. According to California Highway Patrol officers this car accident occurred on southbound Buckman Springs Road north of Oak Drive.
The driver of the car‚ a 15-year-old teenager‚ took his grandmother’s car without permission and picked his school friends up for the ride. The car was speeding when the driver failed to take a curve and lost control. California Highway Patrol public affairs officer Brian Pennings said that the SUV rolled over several times before coming to rest on its wheels.
One of the teenagers was not wearing a seatbelt‚ but luckily was not ejected out of the car and was transported to Rady Children’s Hospital for treatment. All the injured occupants were immediately rushed to nearby hospitals for treatment.
From the present facts‚ the teen driver seems to be at fault. He most certainly was not driving with a valid driver’s license since he is underage. If after the investigation it is found that the teenager was driving at an unsafe speed and that caused the accident to occur‚ he might be responsible to pay all the injured victims compensation to pay for medical costs and pain and suffering.
