A vehicle full of teenagers crashed near El Dorado Springs on Saturday. According to the Missouri Highway Patrol, a 2000 Dodge Neon swerved over the center line on Highway 32 at around 4:15 on Saturday. The driver overcorrected the vehicle and collided with an embankment. The five involved, whose ages span from 13 to 17, suffered moderate injuries. Fortunately only moderate injuries were sustained as none of the teens were wearing seatbelts at the time of the car accident.
This accident appears to have occurred because of negligent and inexperienced driving. Teenage drivers actually pose the highest risk of getting into an auto accident due to their inexperience and reckless behavior.
