"foolish thoughts"? I'm sorry, but you don't even know what happened. Accidents also occur to adults. Do you even know the definition of an accident? Maybe once you hit 60, your license should be revoked, since your reaction time slows. My best friend right now is in the hospital, because she tried to swerve out of the way for an animal. You're absolutely right though, what a foolish thought.

Excuse me Darlene Adler but can you please inform me on why you have the right to label someone you have never met "foolish"? This article is visible to everyone, including the friends and families of the driver and passenger and I find it EXTREMELY inconsiderate for you to be littering the page with your discourteous comments. Instead of hurting people with your ignorance, you should try supporting them.

Darlene Adler must be a professional drive to post such a foolish comment. I have 2 children that are driving and go to school with these girls. Instead of placing blame on these girls for being young driver, Lets be thankful that the outcome was not worse and their classmates don't have to go to school Monday to meet with counselors, and parents aren't grieving over a loss. Darlene, Accidents do happen at ANY AGE, that is why they call them accidents. And to the two girls, We are all glad that your going to be ok.

Old guy here. I'll tell you the truth, those young drivers you are so quick to blame for bad driving are probably better equipped to drive than when I was there age. The cars are safer and protect occupants better than the crud wagons I drove in the 70s when I was first learning to drive. Unless you can provide conclusive data from insurance companies, the NHTSA, and Police records, don't assume that the accident was the result of bad driving. Kelsey and Crowbar are very rural...could of been any number of things besides bad driving.

Good point Greg, except our generation doesn't suffer from chronic, acute attention deficit disorder, like this younger generation, whose brains have been altered by the strobe effects of way, way too many hours of electronic distraction. Driving is not a passive activity and a good driver is not a passenger in his/her own car, staring out the windshield, looking to be entertained. Also, we were not multitasking by playing with electronic gadgetry while we drove, talking on the telephone, or such other-than-driving activities. I'm surprised that there aren't more accidents. Yes, the elderly are worse drivers. The only remedy is to eliminate the entertainment centers that have become part of the driving experience. Also, women should be required to keep makeup in a case in the trunk, so as to not be applying it while driving. Food consumption should likewise be prohibited while the car is in motion.
