A one car rollover accident on Highlands Ranch Parkway sent 4 teenage boys to area hospitals on Monday night. The Denver Post has reported that two of the four passengers were not wearing seat belts and were ejected from the car. The westbound lanes of the Parkway were closed for 4 hours while emergency crews investigated and cleaned up the accident. At this time, the names of the boys, their conditions, and the cause of the accident are not being released.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for U.S. Teens. In 2009, nearly “3,000 teens in the United States aged 15-19 were killed and more than 350,000 were treated in emergency departments for injuries suffered in motor vehicle crashes.” Drivers from this age group are “four times more likely” to crash than older drivers.
