A North Carolina teenager who studied teen highway deaths as a senior high school project is dead after a crash.

18-year-old Shannon Nicole Adkins graduated last spring after turning in a report about the risks facing young drivers on the mainly rural roads of Johnston County.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Monday that Adkins was the 27th Johnston County teen to die in a wreck since the start of 2006 and the second in just over a week.

The highway patrol said Adkins was driving a pickup truck when another pickup crossed into her lane Saturday night and struck her head-on.

She obviously reported the Truth. You could almost say she died proving it...unfortunately. It would have been better perhaps if she was 'seriously injured' that way she could speak out about the incident and something could be done.

No, it's better this way, because now the parents won't have to use the lawsuit money they'll win for long term health care of their hypothetically "'seriously injured'" daughter.
