They say that you're much safer in a plane than a car, and the more one observes the countless ways that motor vehicles kill on the highways the more credible the statement seems. Three teens were killed in a freak fatal accident recently when the SUV they were riding in hit a guard rail and flipped off of a U.S. Highway 431 overpass in Seale, according to Alabama state police. The accident occurred in Eastern Alabama, about 15 miles southwest of Columbus, Ga.
The three fatalities were a 15-year-old girl, a 15-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl. All three were dead at the scene. Four others were injured in the spectacular, plunging crash. The driver, a 37-year-old man of Phenix City and three other passengers were hospitalized. They were a 58-year-old woman, a 17-year-old boy, and a 9-year-old boy.
