14-Year-Old Designated Driver
A fourteen-year-old girl was the driver of a car that was involved in a motor vehicle accident. She was driving the car at a high rate of speed on the freeway. When the highway patrol went to pull her over, she tried to outrun them and ended up running into the concrete divider of the freeway. She and her passengers were brought in as trauma patients.
The driver was severely injured as were the two severely intoxicated adult male passengers. The patient was admitted to the hospital with her jaw broken in two places, a severe ankle sprain and lacerations on her face. Her blood alcohol level was negative so she had not been drinking but she seemed to be a poor choice for a designated driver.
