Pittsburgh—Authorities will have multi-criminal charges against an underage driver after wrecking the sports utility vehicle of her father and causing the death of three of her five teen-aged passengers along NE Pennsylvania over the weekend.

Authorities reported on Wednesday that a girl in her teen was driving a Chevrolet Suburban along Lake Ariel when she overturned the car more than once while trying to negotiate a curve.

D. A. of Wayne County, Janine Edwards said that the wreck killed three boys, age 15, from Buck’s County Council Rock South High School in Bucks County while the female driver, another 15-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl sustain non-critical injuries.

The teen driver was unlicensed driver and was behind the wheel of the BMW sedan that crashed at around 2:15 o’clock in the Saturday morning. She had with her teen’s passengers and they were coming home from a night of fun at the popular October guise as “Knott’s Scary Farm.

CHP discovered that both girls and one of the boys who died were not wearing a seat belt.

Because the driver is still a juvenile, details and identities will be kept private until the investigation is complete; however, the driver will have hell to pay.

Under the laws covering the state of Pennsylvania, criminal juvenile matters are not disclosed to the public.

Pennsylvania State Police officer admitted that the mishap was a parent’s worst nightmare as well as a terrible tragedy.

The girl is a resident in N.Y. Westchester County, just north of NYC and was living with her family in the area’s Pocono Mountains.

In both Pennsylvania and in New York, applicants to obtain a learner’s driving permit must be at least 16 years old and in order to drive, they have to be accompanied by a licensed driver who is at least 21 years old. They are not also allowed to carry their friends with them without adult presence.

Five critical elements must be present for teens to drive safely: (1) good driving skills that include the ability to operate the vehicle and to recognize dangers; as well as the ability to react properly for any unexpected event; (2) appropriate knowledge of traffic rules and operating procedures including a deep understanding of the dangers in traveling and their possible consequences; (3) adequate driving experience acquire from both practice, as well as the familiarity with the result of making bad judgment in lieu of good judgment; (4) maturity or development of the capacity for logical reasoning, judgment, and decision making; and (5) environment or safe surroundings in learning how to drive.

Several studies have found that the presence of teenage passengers increases the crash risk of teenage drivers.
