Two teens injured in San Jose crash

Posted by lapearce on March 19, 2009

Last night a teen was seriously injured in a crash, a crash that happened because the driver was unable to judge the speed of an oncoming car.

A skill that comes with, you guessed it, experience.

The San Jose Mercury News reports that the 17-year-old driver was heading east on a road and attempted to make a left turn in front of a truck heading west, “[he] made a left from the turn pocket, and should have yielded.”

The little 1992 Nissan Coupe carrying two 17-year-old boys was hit by a much larger 2007 GMC pickup on its side, breaking the pelvis of the passenger. The car eventually ended up on its top from the force of the collision.

While the boys are lucky to be alive, there is no doubt that serious physical therapy and pain are in their future. My best wishes to them in their long road to recovery.
