Teenager Injured in Car Accident on FM 530 in Lavaca County, TX

Lavaca County, TX -- December 31, 2022, a teenager was injured after an accident where the car they were in crashed on FM 530.

Details given by authorities indicated that the accident happened at around 9:50 p.m. along FM 530.

The exact details are still unconfirmed at this time, but it appears that a 17-year-old boy was in a Hyundai Sonata traveling southbound along the roadway. While rounding a curve, the vehicle ran off-road where it eventually skidded into a tree.

The teen driver had injuries described as incapacitating. No one else appeared to be involved in the crash.

When I talk about all the ways drivers can fall victim to circumstances beyond their control (such as mechanical issues or hit-and-run drivers), the response is usually receptive, as they are factors people don't often consider. But when the driver is a teenager, that positive reception goes out the window.

Frankly, people see a kid behind the wheel and just assume they were reckless. Statistically, teen drivers are more likely to cause a crash. But with details unconfirmed here, what good does it do the family to blame their kid for a crash? It's important to give people the benefit of the doubt since there are all kinds of factors which could come to light that explain the events reasonably. I've never understood why people can't be equally prudent just because of the driver's age. They, too, deserve a chance to let the evidence speak for itself.
