Students and faculty are mourning at Batesville High School in Arkansas after a car accident claimed two of their own. On Monday night, six Batesville teenagers were traveling in a vehicle along McHue Road when at approximately 10:30 p.m., they were involved in a single-vehicle car crash. The driver of the 2014 Ford Mustang lost control of the vehicle, left the roadway, and collided with a tree. William Olson and Camdon Osborne, both 15-years-old, were killed in the accident, and the other four teens were injured. According to residents in the area, the roadway where the accident occurred is known for speeding drivers and car accidents. Local authorities are investigating the accident.
Most people assume that a car accident is caused by the reckless or negligent actions of the driver. This assumption is typically correct; however, other factors can cause auto accidents such as vehicle design flaws, mechanical defects, and dangerous roadways. Single-vehicle accidents could be caused by one of these factors, and any individual injured should consult an experienced St. Louis car accident lawyer to determine who is responsible for the crash.
