What was going on that a 14 year old was driving? Was she joy riding, did she have somone's permission, were there drugs/alcohol involved? How about a little more substance......that is on the news end. On the human side, God bless this family and friends who have lost a loved one. May he hold you in His hands during this terrible time.

i grew up in a town not far from this. It's completely common for 14 year olds to drive cars and trucks and 4 wheelers and tractors all over the place. its a totally different world back in the country. i was driving to town when i was 13.

I spent many summers in Wetumka as this is where my mother's parents lived. I remember lots of times being out with my grandpa and seeing kids not much older than me driving. It is a very rural area so its not that uncommon. My prayers go out to her family.

I totally agree w/ you, it wasn't but 14 yrs ago that I was out cruising in my moms car @14. Ofcourse I had lots of experience on our farm before town driving. But people w/ experience crash too, its a terrible tragedy!

LOL! I'm from a small town too and it is funny how everyone in small towns seem to all be related to each other in one way or another.

I too grew up not far from Wetumka. I learned to drive on the dirt roads surrounding that town, starting about age 14-1/2. It is a very rural setting with many expansive farms separated by dirt roads mostly. It is NOT uncommon for the children in these farming communities to start with a dirt bike or a 4-wheeler and transition to a car at about age 14 and learning on dirt roads. Do not crucify the parents, as they are not allowing anything out of the norm for their environment.

It has been many a time that a youngster has saved a family member only because they had the ability to drive to town for help (way before cell phones). If you look at the big picture, it is actually about average as far as good versus evil on this one.

By the way, not so very long ago, my grandmother was married at 13 and had her first baby at 14. Get real people. Living in glass houses must be really tiring for those who cannot wrap their minds around a 14-year-old driving in a rural community. Maybe you should get out more and spend your money in Oklahoma touring the "back country."

I will not be throwing stones. God bless this family and help them in their hour of need.

Rural area or not, its illegal to be driving under that age.. the small towns should be watched more and should have to abide by the laws.

What in the world is a druck person? And how do you know that it was a "he" and where did you see that she was pregnant?

I am from Wetumka. I heard about the accident this morning. I don't know the girl or her family. I've lived here all of my life and theirs just too many newbies comming to town for me to stay up with them.
Sad loss for the family. Maybe this will change a few things.

Okay I'm still curious as to who&what is a druck person. How do you know she was pregnant & by whom! And whether whomever she was driving twisted her arm to drive. Everyone makes there own decissions, its not the parents or anyone elses fault unless they ran her off the road. It's just a terrible tragedy that could have happened to anyone.
My sympathy & prayers are still with the family!
