A 16-year-old boy drove a car down a residential Brooklyn street, traveling more than 60 mph. He lost control and swerved into a parked car, a tree, and a house. A 13-year-old girl in the back seat was killed, police told a New York Criminal Lawyer.
The driver and his friend, also a 16-year-old boy, were not seriously injured in the crash on East 23rd Street at Avenue P in Midwood. The driver was given a Breathalyzer test and passed it.
The young girl in the back seat was taken to Kings County Hospital where she died of massive head injuries. The girl and the driver lived at the same address, but police would not tell New York Criminal Lawyers how the two were related.
At the time of the accident, the driver was in a Honda Odyssey minivan, driving at speeds up to 63 mph in a 30-mph zone. He was charged with reckless endangerment, speeding, operating a vehicle out of class, and criminally negligent homicide.
The driver had only a junior license, which meant he had to drive with a licensed driver sitting next to him and he could have no more than one underage passenger in the car. It is unknown if any of the teens were wearing seatbelts – the families would not speak to reporters or New York Criminal Lawyers.
After being treated at Kings County Hospital, the boys were released. Neighbors told New York Criminal Lawyers the family of the girl is very private. They attend a neighborhood synagogue.
