On September 3rd 2009 15 year old Rachel Stewart was headed north on I-380 when she lost control of the van she was driving went onto the median and flipped. Rachel Stewart and one of the other passengers, Rachel Peterson, were both hospitalized while a third passenger 16 year old Alyssa Benedict from Tiffin died as a result of the injuries suffered in the crash. Benedict and Peterson were not wearing their seat belt, but the real question is why a 15 year old is driving without a parent present and on the Interstate Highways in Iowa.  Answer that question and you’ll have the answer to the right question.

Why are there so many injuries?
