Two Teens Seriously Injured in Fiery Car Crash on Interstate 80 in Truckee

 
Truckee, CA (September 4, 2020) – Thursday night, a 14-year-old driver and his 15-year-old passenger sustained severe injuries in a fiery car crash on Interstate 80 near Donner Pass Road.
 
The incident happened on Thursday, September 3.
 
The CHP said the 14-year-old was driving a 2017 Maserati eastbound on Interstate 80 near Donner Pass Road when he lost control of the car. The teen was reportedly driving over 100 mph.
 
“The vehicle then slammed into the guardrail south of the highway. The guardrail went through the right-front passenger door, and the car “rapidly caught on fire,” CHP added.
 
The two occupants escape the burning car but sustained severe burns and airlifted to UC Davis Medical Center. The 15-year-old passenger also suffered internal injuries.
 
Moreover, alcohol and drugs are not considered a factor in the accident.
 
No other information is provided immediately. Further investigation is ongoing.
 

 
Crash rates in California continue to increase, rather than decrease, despite the additional safety features on newer vehicle models. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), two out of three motorists will be involved in an injury accident during their life. Though we don’t want this to happen, it is still vital to know when to proceed if you or a family member is involved in a similar car accident.

It is also recommended to use a ride share app if you can’t safely operate a vehicle to avoid this kind of accident.
