  • Drunk Driving at 14

    I really have no idea where to start calling out the wrong decisions on this one. Please discuss:

    A 14-year-old girl, suspected of being intoxicated, crashed the van she was driving east of the Tiger Mountain Summit on Highway 18 this morning.

    The girl's 32-year-old mother was passed out in the passenger seat when the accident occurred.

    A witness described the girl as "wildly changing speeds" and lanes, said Trooper Cliff Pratt with the Washington State Patrol. She lost control of the 1997 Dodge Caravan before 5:30 a.m. and crashed into a ditch. The van rolled several times.

    As the van overturned, "a supermarket beer aisle spilled out over the highway," Pratt said. "There were beer cans everywhere."

    The State Patrol said earlier that the girl and her mother were coming back from the Muckleshoot Casino in Auburn. But they were actually coming from a private residence near the casino, Pratt said.

    The teenager, who wasn't wearing a seat belt, was ejected through the rear window and sustained serious head injuries, Pratt said. The mother sustained minor injuries. Both were transported to Overlake Hospital Medical Center in Bellevue.

    The girl faces possible charges of driving while intoxicated, vehicular assault and driving without a license, police said.

    The mother is facing possible charges of allowing a minor to drive, reckless endangerment and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, among other charges.

            You're right. There are several 17 y/o girls who get pregnant & turn out to be great grandmothers. I think we can agree that it's not the best scenario.

                  My wife had her kids at 14 and 20.... her first child was born premature and mentally impaired, and was permanently blinded by the oxygen environment of the incubator she was put in. She raised them both by herself (they're now 27 and 21). She never took welfare, she worked hard to give them and herself a good life. In addition to her job as an executive assistant, she has a company making tactile/braille greeting cards for the blind.

                  Anyone can make a mistake regardless of their maturity level. What sets a mature person from an immature person is how they step up and handle those mistakes.

                      My mother-in-law was 16 when my wife was born & I obviously have no problem with the way she was raised. We can bring up successful examples all day long but it doesn't change the fact that they are exceptions and not the rule.

                          If their offspring keep the reproduction rate going, they can not only be great grandmothers, but great, great grandmothers.

                            I'm infuriated by this story. Who would knowingly drive a '97 Dodge Caravan. :mad:
