A tragic motor vehicle accident out of Cana, Virginia, made headlines yesterday, when three teens were killed after the pickup truck they were riding in crashed.
My FOX 8 in Virginia reports that two of the teens who died were riding in the back of the truck, and one was in the cab. Three other teens in the vehicle sustained injuries and were treated at the Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center.
High speeds and a loss of control were reportedly factors in the truck accident, which happened on Sunday. The driver of the pickup truck was 15 years old and did not have a driver’s license.
This sad truck accident is a reminder to parents to educate their children on proper use of motor vehicles, and to follow traffic rules to stay safe.
