    "Couldn't duplicate the accident if she tried"? I know for a fact that this is the second identical accident at the identical location. Years ago, my little brother pulled the same trick with our family van at that exact spot.
    P.S. It might not be a bad idea to put up a barricade. The next time we may not be so lucky with injuries.

    My two daughters began driving 5 and 7 years ago. I was 40 then, now I'm 65. Teenage drivers are the leading cause of parental aging.

    I recently watched a kid (19 yrs old) veer off the street and run smack into a tree. I was watching him the whole time and he was texting. After he hit the tree, (severe damage to SUV-none to him) and he was calmed down, I asked him if his phone was ok. He went on to tell me that he just got a new iphone and loved it. When the cops arrived he told them he was forced off the road by an unknown driver.

    She was very upset that she couldn't keep on driving when it was stuck. Anyway, what was she so upset about for whatever reason that happened to that car?

    One day my son was doing a U turn that he drove on the lawn and on sidewalks which was strange. I told him to not do that again!

    What in the world is this 16 year old doing out alone at that time of the morning anyway? Parents do you know where your child is? Do you care?

    Hopefully the young girl learns a good lesson from this, both in distracted driving and about being honest. People make mistakes. What happens next is what is important.

    Fortunately for everybody involved, it seemed that nobody was hurt badly. Unfortunately for the reader, it seemed that the photographer didn't coordinate with the writer who's article emphasized the unusual circumstances, geography leading up to the car landing where it did. There were no photographs to help the reader understand visually what the writer and those quoted were talking about. It would have been nice to have at least one or two photographs of the road, the turn, and the terrain that the car had to maneuver around.
