14-Year-Old Killed in Crash, brother survives
A 14-year-old boy died Sunday after the truck his 16-year-old brother was driving crashed. The accident occurred on Teal Road in Clarksburg, Calif. It took rescue crews almost 20 minutes to reach the rural area. The 16-year-old was uninjured in the crash.
The identities of the teens have yet to be released. The California Highway Patrol said the brothers were out hunting together before the deadly accident occurred.
The gravel road is narrow where the accident took place and an easy spot for the driver to loose control of the vehicle. Good Samaritans in the area heard the crash and rushed to help the 14-year-old boy while his brother waited for his parents to arrive.
His parents were in shock as they watched as people tired to rescue their son.
“We were afraid the car would tilt over even more and go all the way in the water,” said Itzayana Medina in an interview with CBS 13 Sacramento.
The California Highway Patrol is still investigating the crash and are unsure if the boy drowned or died from injuries sustained in the crash.
