Preliminary Data Suggests Teen Driver In Fatal Wreck Driving Over 120 MPH
Preliminary results in the investigation into a weekend crash that killed three people has revealed that the teen driver involved may have been going over 120 miles per hour at the time of the wreck.
The 16-year-old driver crossed the median on I-94 just east of Albion Sunday night and hit another vehicle head-on.
The Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office says the crash killed a 16-year-old male passenger in the teen's car and injured two 15-year-old girls. A 74-year-old Jackson woman and a 77-year-old Columbus, Ohio, woman in the westbound vehicle were killed and a 57-year-old Jackson man was injured.
The Sheriff’s Office says data from the first car’s computer shows a speed of 124 miles per hour prior to the driver losing control.
