Conroe, TX — The teenager killed in Monday, July 14, 2014’s accident in Conroe, Texas, has been identified as 17-year old Brehana Lewis. Lewis was the driver of a Ford F-150 that flipped after crashing into a guardrail. Three other teens riding with her at the time were all taken to Conroe Regional Hospital for the treatment of their injuries.
Since the accident occurred, it’s been reported that one of the boys has been released.
The teenagers were on their way home from a dance hall when Lewis lost control of the truck and crashed. Police have stated that while speed may have played a factor in the accident, they don’t believe that alcohol had anything to do with it.
Scene of the Accident
What happened here was a tragedy, but I’d like to be very honest about it. I wasn’t at the scene. I haven’t seen the same things the police have been looking at. I’m going completely off of what’s been reported in the press. If speed played a factor in the accident, that could be considered a type of negligence on the driver’s part, which would make her liable for the injuries sustained by her passengers. There’s a duty drivers owe their passengers, and that is to maintain a safe environment while they’re driving. Speeding, which opens you up to all sorts of trouble, is a violation of that duty.
