The educational process hides many hazards. While some fear that their children will learn that God did not make the world, others are at risk on the way to school, as two teenagers have demonstrated in Boston.
The danger is real, and it comes in the form of swimming pools. While the threat was overlooked for decades, it appears that the culprits are people who have placed these constructions in their yards.
Fortunately, the two teenage girls who drove a 2002 Lexus ES300 into a utility pole were not harmed by the vehicle’s immersion in a swimming pool. However, this could have ended in a tragedy, as the impact had the potential to be fatal if the circumstances were slightly changed.
The cause of the wreck has yet to be concluded, but it looks like the 17-year-old girl who was driving lost control of the wheel on the way to the high school she was attending, CBS informs.
The accident happened at about 7:30 a.m., when attention is faint for most drivers, and temperatures tend to be near freezing.
Evidently, the vehicle’s speed could have been a factor here, as it was difficult to believe that a car that was being driven at a reasonable pace would crash into a utility pole and go through a fence if its driver was obeying the speed limit. We will not rush to condemn the teenage driver here, because you can have a stroke of bad luck and meet a patch of black ice when you least expect it.
That is why you should always be alert while driving, and your mobile phone should be left alone when you are behind the wheel. Last year, we made a guide for beginner drivers, which we recommend to all those who have recently started driving. It applies to teenagers and adults that are new behind the wheel of an automobile.
