The crash may have claimed two innocent victims. Police say the 17-year-old, who killed two sisters after the car she was driving crashed into the girls in Hobe Sound, was high on opiates.
The Post describes a harrowing lead-up to the crash, citing detectives who say the 17-year old was driving her 2007 Honda Accord at a speed of 107mph when she struck a trailer and left the road and careened through a field and ditch before slamming into the home.
She had four teens and a pre-teen as passengers in the car with her. One told police he asked the 17-year old driver to let him out of the car because the speed was scaring him.
The driver faces 10 felony charges, including two counts of reckless homicide in connection with the deaths of a 17-year old and an 8-year old. The Post reports the girls had been watching TV on the couch when the car entered their home with such force it nearly exited the other side of the living room.
The 17-year old has been charged as an adult and entered a preliminary plea of not guilty.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident that resulted in the death of two young girls. We wish the victim a speedy recovery and hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident.
