Scene of the Accident
Considering these were young kids, and they were in the same car, chances are they probably knew each other and were friends, so the proceedings after the accident can be difficult to say the least. But one thing I’ve seen needs to be addressed. Considering the driver only had a provisional license, I’m kind of curious who allowed him to drive a car without a parent. This could be a case of negligent instrument, and the vehicle’s owner, or whoever threw him the keys could also bear some liability in the accident, but again, it all depends on the terms of North Carolina’s provisional licenses and how the details solidify through investigation.
