Jadyn Boyd, 1 Other Killed in Rollover Accident on FM 2053 in Lynn County, TX

Lynn County, TX — December 14, 2022, 18-year-old Jadyn Boyd and another teen died in a single-vehicle accident on Farm to Market Road 2053 in Lynn County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 8:00 p.m. on FM 2053 northeast of O'Donnell. Preliminary investigation suggests a 15-year-old was driving a pickup truck west on the roadway when they may have lost control for unknown reasons. The truck drifted through the eastbound lanes and entered the south ditch, at which point the teen over-corrected to the right. The truck then ran back through the roadway and the driver over-corrected once more; the truck then spun out and side-skidded into the south ditch.

Boyd and a 15-year-old passenger in the pickup were killed in the crash. The driver's condition is unknown.

No further information is available at this time.

Commentary on Jadyn Boyd Accident in Lynn County

Crashes involving teen drivers, serious and tragic as they are, don't always get the careful investigation they deserve. Why? Because many people regard them mostly as tragic byproducts of inexperienced or potentially-reckless young people taking risks behind the wheel, prematurely pinning the blame on the drivers without waiting for the facts to come in.

However, I think most would agree that it's crucial to learn whether there's more to the story. Young drivers have been known to make serious mistakes, but unusual issues like tire blowouts and vehicle defects can't be ignored without proper investigation. Unfortunately, they and other less-common issues are often overlooked during "by the book" police efforts. That's why I wrote about what things a full investigation might look into--and who should most likely do the looking.
