ANTIOCH (BCN) One teenager was killed and four others injured in a crash in Antioch late Saturday night, police said.

The five Antioch residents were in one vehicle heading east on James Donlon Boulevard when the driver lost control at Nightingale Drive and crashed into a retaining wall about 11:25 p.m., according to Antioch police.

The vehicle overturned onto its side, killing a 19-year-old man, police said.

The 18-year-old driver and two 16-year-old girls were hospitalized with various injuries. One of the girls remained in critical condition this morning, police said.

Sad indeed, now to the nitty gritty, cause? Booze, drugs, excess speed, screwing around or a combo of them all? Sorry but unless it was a mechanical failure of the steering or a blown tire, cars just don't lose control.

Traditional - Those are someone's children. You don't need to be disrespectful.

I'm not. It's a sad day when a kid dies in a traffic accident. I want to know what caused it. We can then use the cause as a way to try to keep other kids alive by trying to teach them what can happen.

I am related to the teen that died; from what we have been told the driver has 2 dui's already and our family plans to make sure this kid is put away. It has been a hard time for our family. Also Antioch Police told my family to dispurse when they were trying have a candlelight vigil where he died. Good job Antioch PD.

My condolences in your loss. Hopefully this lesson can reach some other kids about drinking and driving and the driver gets the book tossed at him.

It's not being disrespectful to want to know the cause of this accident. I want to know the cause as well. Seeing as how I live right near that area this could have easily been tragic for someone else if they had crashed into someones house or hit someone walking on the sidewalk. Even if it was just teens being dumb teens I want to know. This isn't the first death that stretch of road has seen either. Walking around that area you are really risking your life.

Sometimes youth get into accidents regardless of intoxicants. Not an excuse for DUI. But that doesn't change the facts that someone died and were injured. Many of us have been there as teens ourselves. And sometimes cars do steer out of control without mechanical error. Like potholes and hydroplaning and other drivers who are drunk or cell phone talking while cutting other people off and causing them to crash.
