Teen injured in Missouri auto accident
January 8, 2009
A teenage driver was seriously injured in a recent Missouri car accident involving two vehicles, according to the Carthage Press.
The teen was driving down the road and did not give an oncoming truck the right of way when the Missouri car accident occurred.
The truck hit the driver’s side of the teen’s car, causing the car to spin and go off the side of the road. He hit a nearby utility pole and was pinned inside the car.
Rescuers were able to extract the teen and take him to a local hospital, where he is listed as being in serious condition.
The driver of the pickup truck was taken to another local hospital for moderate injuries he sustained during the Missouri auto accident.
Authorities said the truck driver was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the Missouri car accident, and they are unsure if the teenage driver was wearing his.
