According to the denverpost.com, a 14-year-old girl was killed in a rollover accident east of Calhan, CO, when her brother lost control of the car. Jae Ellis, was killed in the accident and pronounced dead at the scene and her brother, 16-year-old Jourdan Ellis, was taken to the hospital with life threatening injuries. The driver apparently lost control of the vehicle causing it to veer off the right-side of the road striking a fence before rolling. Neither drugs, alcohol, nor speeding were presumed to be a factor in the accident. The crash is still under investigation at this time by the Colorado State Patrol.According to reports made by the Insurance Institute For Highway Safety, “3,023 teenagers ages 13-19 died in motor vehicle crashes in 2011” and “Eighty percent of teenage motor vehicle crash deaths in 2011 were passenger vehicle occupants.” Vehicle accidents killed more teenagers, ages 13-19, than anything else in the United States in 2010. In 2011, 59% of all teenagers killed in auto accidents were in a car driven by another teenager. If you have been injured in a car accident, contact Denver car accident lawyer John R. Fuller today.
