For any young Massachusetts teenager, it is never expected to be involved in a fatal car accident. Many kids in high school have their whole lives ahead of them and often hope to be destined for greatness. This was the hope of one teenager, and a member of the cheerleading team at her local high school, until she was killed in a car accident as the result of a possible speeding driver. The parents, who are likely grieving deeply, may be able to file a claim against the driver for wrongful death.
The 17-year-old girl was riding passenger to another 17-year-old when the accident occurred. Apparently, the driver crashed into a forest area on the side of a road after losing control of the vehicle. The girl unfortunately suffered catastrophic injuries as the result of this crash. She was able to be taken to a nearby hospital but was pronounced dead upon her arrival. It is unknown of the severity of the driver's injuries, but reports do not claim they are at all life-threatening.
