Teen Killed in Single-Vehicle on CR 408 in Nacogdoches County, TX

Nacogdoches County, TX -- February 19, 2023, a teenager was killed following an accident where their vehicle crashed off CR 408.

Initial details about the crash say that it happened at around 2:20 a.m. in the area of County Road 408 and County Road 411. Right now, the cause of the crash has not been confirmed. A 16-year-old girl was in a 2020 Ford pickup going northbound along CR 408. Somehow, it lost control and crashed into a pole off-road. The girl died as a result.

Authorities say they're looking into unsafe speeds as a possible factor right now, but I can't help wondering if they have any evidence to steer them in that direction. They very well could, obviously, but I've seen too many situations where people just assume a teen driver did something wrong without actually doing a proper investigation.

I frequently discuss the importance of investigations into things like mechanical issues, medical conditions, road hazards, tire blowouts, and other situations drivers may not be able to avoid. Why would a teenager be an exception to that? Just because they're statistically more likely to make a mistake? That doesn't change the fact their family deserves answers, and I just can't help being concerned those steps aren't being taken here.
