Yes, it is a tragic situation. Willing participatant or not. Other states are filing charges on kids for sending hateful text messages. The bottom line is she's going to be ok. I never said that it wasn't a stupid thing to do. But, maybe if all parties involved took responsiblility for their part in the game and was punished by serving community service. Who knows it might just save the life of another teenager.

Charges should be filed?? For what? If she was a willing participant in a "Game" then she's simply stupid.
By the way, this was NOT a tragedy!

I told her what an idiot she was when I saw her in the hospital. I'm pissed off at the fact the YPD doesn't investigate further. This is a big group of kids, surely they can find the weak on in the bunch to tell the truth.

To Vicki: In one statement, you lash out at someone who called this kid an idiot, and in the next you admit she volunteered to be run over. Do you need a spotlight and handwritten directions to see that this kid isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer?
And if what you say is true, kudos to her guardian who lied to the police and press. Because "she layed down on the concrete to text" was SUCH a believable story.*rolls eyes*
Kids are dumb and don't have a lot of common sense, but it takes a special kind to voluntarily let a "friend" try to back over them. I

For all of those who call her stupid, she is not. Now, for her lack of jugdement, yes there is. I happen to know that the information given to KFOR was fabricated, she was actually car surfing when she fell off. Think about it, a tire hits your chest and only a collar bone and ribs are hurt? It only takes 5 lbs psi to break a bone, last time I checked, cars weigh a lot more than that.

Lessons need to start at home. Common sense is one of those lessons. Just like looking both ways when crossing the street. I have next to no sympathy for someone who makes such a poor/stupid decision.

Another car accident caused by texting by the way.

From my experiance most kids know everything by the age of 15. Just ask them. As for this girl she was doing teenager stupid stuff. a good majority done it when they were that age. The only difference is we weren't on the news and not everyone knew about it. I don't think you can fault the parents nor the guardian. you can't be with kids every moment of the day to make sure they don't make bad decission's

You know what I was thinking when I read that story was how do you break your jaw and collarbone from getting run over by a CAR but not have your neck broken? Or have your whole head smushed like a bug? Her injuries sound more like she was thrown off the vehicle and landed on her face.

Maybe KFOR should do a little more digging and get to the bottom of the TRUE story.

please tell me that all of these adults are not buying any of this crap. obviously these kids came up witha a story quickly to keep themselves out of trouble. which, atleast proves they are in fact smarter than this "accident" suggests. Why is it that i can watch a short video and clearly see this isn't what really happened, but the police officer, ER doctor and nurses, not to mention parents and "aunts" don't think this needs further investigation? wow. THESE TEENAGERS LIED. sounds like car surfing gone bad, right lois?

Regardless of how it happened, she doesn't sound too bright. If "laying in a parking space to text" sounded like a good story, I can only imagine that what really happened was even dumber. Car surfing sounds about right to me. Maybe she was texting WHILE car surfing? They should probably ban that... much safer if you devote your full attention to not falling off.

Maybe you can't be with them every second of the day. But you can teach them to use their head for something else other than a speed bump. My kids have lost a friend or two because they made a better decision than what their friends wanted them to (just saying no will make people look down at you at that age sometimes). Do you think they would be better off learning the lesson the hard way just because I was too lazy to teach it to them? There is a difference in a laps in judgment and not thinking at all. ITS A PARKING LOT!!!!!

I read a few of the comments and I'm understanding that there was some alleged car surfing involved. Need I say more on the girls lack of sense? I don't think she was car surfing though. I don't think these injuries are consistent with that. Doesn't matter. Either story goes under the doing something stupid category. Though, car surfing is slightly (key word slightly) less dangerous and not as ridiculous.

Nope. Don't watch bull riding. And I could be wrong about the injuries. But can you honestly say that car surfing is any better? If they were car surfing, then the lying down texting excuse is good for all of them. The driver doesn't get in trouble, no one else involved gets in trouble and she stays out of trouble just out of sympathy and they rack it up to just a laps of judgment.

It was car surfing. They all lied and the police know they lied. There were no tire tracks on her body according to a police supervisor. Her injuries are not consistent with someone who was ran over by a car...let alone TWICE. The police spokesperson, Klare Ly is too busy catting around with the chief to give a rats a$$ whether the truth comes out or not.
