DEKALB COUNTY, Ind. (WOWO): Shortly before 7:30 P.M. DeKalb County Sheriff’s Deputies were called to the 6300 block of County Road 5 where a 17-year-old male from Garrett was traveling northbound and lost control. The teen then ran off the roadway, striking a utility pole with the driver-side front fender. The teen’s vehicle continued and struck a wire fence belonging to a residence in the area, eventually coming to rest facing southwest in the wire fence. The driver, along with two passengers were able to exit the vehicle safely as they were all wearing seatbelts. All three suffered minor injuries, but refused medical treatment at the scene.
Well, if i was this child’s parent, i would have a grab-bag of emotions here…
Sure you could question their skills, their speed, their distractions, their thought processes… but, you just can’t skip the fact that you can still question them..
Looks like the vehicle did its job protecting its cargo, as did these young ones do there part, wearing their safety restraints. Sounds like they maaAAAaay need to slow it down, or remove a few distractions, but this is surely an opportunity for improvement that not everyone gets.
They do need to count their blessings.
I like stories that end with minor injuries, and everyone able to go car shopping again!
