Tina Robinson3 years ago

One teen is dead after a fatal car crash in Columbus, Ohio just west of the Ohio State University Campus early Sunday morning, according to the Columbus Dispatch.

Details of the Deadly Crash

  • The accident happened at approximately 2:45 a.m. on Sunday on the exit ramp for Route 315 southbound at Kinnear Road in Columbus, OH.
  • A Honda Civic, driven by Jordan Kendall, 16, was exiting when the driver lost control of the vehicle and struck a Chrysler 300 driven by Ahmed Mahjoubi that was stopped at a red light.
  • The impact from the crash pushed the Chrysler across Kinnear Road.
  • The Honda Civic spun twice before striking a tree in a nearby movie theater parking lot.

Sunday’s accident was the 12th motor vehicle fatality in Columbus this year. Police say that Kendall was a newly licensed driver.

Teen Driving Statistics

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) say that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for U.S. teens. Because teens are less experienced and unable to recognize hazardous situations as well as older drivers, teens between the ages of 16 and 19 are three times more likely than drivers aged 20 and older to be in a fatal crash. The CDC also notes that males and newly licensed teens are two of the groups most at risk for being involved in a fatal crash.
