Two teenage boys have lost their lives in a tragic single-car collision in Indiana. Now, their parents and other family members are left to grieve and question how these boys’ lives could have ended so soon. A third teenage boy survived the motor vehicle accident.

The recent collision took place on a Wednesday at around 8:15 a.m. According to police, one of the teenage boys, 17, was driving a car, while the two other boys were passengers in it. Reportedly, the car suddenly collided with a tree. Police said the collision split the motor vehicle into three sections, and killed the driver and a 16-year-old passenger.

A 16-year-old boy who was riding in the back seat suffered injuries in the crash and was taken to the hospital, where his condition was deemed critical. Police said that the driver was speeding at the time of the crash. In addition, it was snowing, and the road was wet when the collision happened. Authorities will continue to investigate the collision.

The surviving loved ones of the car passenger who died in the Indiana motor vehicle accident may choose to file a wrongful death claim in this situation, seeking the reimbursement of monetary damages. Likewise, the surviving passenger may decide to file a personal injury claim. Although the driver of the car ended up dying in the collision, civil suits could still be filed against the adult family member to whom the car was registered. A successfully fought suit might lead to financial damages that may help with covering medical bills, funeral costs and other losses resulting from the motor vehicle accident.
