On February 28, two women of high school or college age were riding in a fast-moving car northbound on I-5 when they approached a slower-moving Subaru car. The Subaru tried to change lanes, but the faster car also changed lanes, hitting it, spinning across the median and colliding with a southbound pickup truck. The two young women were thrown from the car and killed. The pickup driver, one person from the Subaru, and two other occupants of the fast-moving car were taken to the hospital.
A recent study by the AAA Foundation found that the majority of teen driver fatalities involve those other than the teen driver. The families of the victims in this accident should contact a personal injury attorney immediately to preserve their rights.
