On Friday afternoon, a single-vehicle auto accident claimed the lives of two teenage twin brothers. The Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to the accident near Wheelerville, Missouri. Accident reports indicate that a 16-year-old male was operating a pickup truck when he lost control and the truck overturned. Despite wearing their seat belts, both the driver and his twin brother were killed in the accident.
Suffering the loss of a loved one is one of the most difficult things a person can experience, especially if the death was that of a young person. Tragically, thousands of teens are killed in auto accidents every year. In fact, car crashes are one of the leading causes of death amongst drivers ages 16 through 19. While inexperience, distracted driving, and DUI are often to blame for these accidents, the teen driver is not always to blame. Negligent driving of other motorists, dangerous roadways, design flaws, and mechanical defects also contribute to many auto accidents. The only way to determine the exact cause and party responsible is to conduct a full investigation.
