Today’s story is about a teenager who was killed in a single vehicle accident. The 18-year-old and his passenger were driving really early in the morning, perhaps going home after some event. The driver, who was killed, veered and ended up hitting a light pole.
The vehicle caught fire, but there were two people on the scene who were there to help the passengers of the SUV escape the blaze. They were able to rescue one, but the driver was left because the flames were out of control.
The drivers is described, “Ben was so smart. He was so funny and he had so many friends. I don’t think he ever had enemies. Everyone loved him and he was really humble.” The passenger from the accident is expected to survive with severe leg injuries.
