The 19 year old went to the hospital, but the 18 year old passanger died at the scene. Is this a wrongful death case because of the driver’s negligence? Probably so. The families of these young adults probably have a lot of questions. We hope that they have their questions answered and have some peace. Deputies believe that alcohol was related in the crash. This means that the driver may have been driving under the influence of alcohol. Was the driver cited for intoxication? Will criminal charges be pressed?
