I saw this wreck yesterday just after it happened. God bless both these kids. The 17 year old will need a lot of help getting past this. I pray that she does someday.

Maybe babysitting. I sure hope there were cameras at this intersection so the police can determine who was at fault.

She made a left in front of the semi, it seems pretty clear from the story. Young drivers don't have the skills of estimating how quickly a speeding car is coming at them unfortunately.
So Sad

It is a known fact that I am no big fan of truck drivers, but, it could be that she was waiting to turn left and the light turned red. Maybe she thought the truck was going to stop and started her turn only to find out the truck driver was running the light. Then again the fault could be all hers.

The only thing we really know for sure is a young person lost their life, a family is forever going to hurt because of it and both drivers are more than likely going to deny any fault.

What a tradegy. I feel horrible for the family of the 10-year old girl as well as the teenager as she has to live with this on her conscious. My daughter will be driving soon and it scares the death out of me as their reaction times are sooo much slower than an experienced driver. My condolences to all involved.

Red light, green light whatever. A driver never relies on the colors. Before you turn, always get a feeling if traffic is stopping. That's why I always wait 2 seconds after the light turns green to make sure I feel comfortable that vehicles are coming to a stop in the other direction.

Such a sad story.

I don't know the intersection, but... Are there traffic lights? Did the car have a green arrow? Did the semi run the red?

there is a simple solution for you- don't let her get her license. I have an 18 year old and a 16 year old and neither have their license. I work in the insurance industry and have too many times seen a youthful driver be added to their parents police and within 2 months they've had an accident or speeding ticket. Just because a child is of driving age, doesn't mean they need to get their license. Driving is a privilege not a right.

Rules of the Road are that you never make a left turn even when the light is red unless you know the oncoming cars are stopped. If you do turn, plan on any accidents being your fault. So many people make this mistake. We get comfortable with our own rules of the road. Our children learn those same things. So remember, never turn left in front of traffic even when the light turns yellow or red. Wait, Wait, Wait until oncoming traffic stops. My condolences for this family and young driver.

A 17 yr. old could be driving a 10 yr. old for any number of reasons. Doesn't mean they were sisters. She could have been babysitting the girl for instance.

So... you were riding in the car and know that this person was using a cellphone? Or you personally witnessed it? If you DON'T know something to be a fact, don't assume that it is so. I'm quite sure this 17 yr. old has died a thousand deaths already over this without people ASSUMING she did this or that. Could have been she just made a mistake in judgement--thought she had time to turn or maybe there was a red light, and she thought the truck was going to stop and it didn't. Any number of scenarios could have occurred. Prayers go out to both families--a real tragedy that I know the surviving driver will be carrying with her as well. Such a shame...
