Teens Narrowly Avoid Rolling Down Hill in Speeding Crash
Benton County Deputies and a wrecker responded to a remote rural area near Prosser Tuesday after a pair of teens narrowly avoided rolling their SUV a steep hill.
Shortly before noon, Deputies were called to a section of South Lincoln Road in the rural Prosser area, and found this maroon SUV mired in gravel on the edge of a steep hill.
Officials say the 16-year-old male driver was speeding excessively fast, well over the 25 MPH posted speed limit. He lost control, fishtailed and ended up stuck in loose gravel; which actually kept the vehicle from rolling and tumbling down this steep embankment. That, say Deputies, could have been far worse.
The drive and his 16-year-old passenger were not injured in the incident, but both likely needing a change of underwear after this one. Especially considering the view they would have had of the hill after they stopped.
And, one more question: Why weren't they in school? Hmmmm!
Maybe when driver gets a little older, he can drive in a safer manner.
