Teenage Passenger Killed in Single-Car Accident When Driver Flees Police & Runs Stop Sign
Our client was the front passenger in his friend’s vehicle at the time of this accident. Initially, the driver of the vehicle was signaled by police to pull over after the officer witnessed the vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed. While the police attempted to initiate a traffic stop for this speed violation, the driver failed to stop. As a result, the officer engaged in a pursuit, which was terminated just after a few minutes prior to this accident. Over a mile away from where the pursuit was terminated, the driver was still traveling at an unsafe speed when they failed to stop at a posted stop sign, causing the vehicle to veer off the right side of the road. Ultimately, the vehicle struck two trees before coming to its final rest. Our client was pronounced dead at the scene. Due to the recklessness of the driver, our client tragically lost his life at the young age of seventeen. Our office is pursuing a wrongful death action on behalf of the surviving family.
