Driver charged after fatal accident
The driver of a car that was involved in an accident that caused the death of a passenger, has been charged with two violations in connection with the accident.
The 17-year-old driver of the car was charged with speeding and failure to maintain control of the accident. A 16-year-old passenger was killed due to injuries that were sustained in the crash. Charges were filed in connection with the October 27 accident after the Iowa State Patrol finished their investigation.
Speeding cars can cause serious accidents because it makes it very difficult to keep control of the car. Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the victim in the crash.
