Four Teens Injured In Wreck In Vanceboro

Four teens were injured after their car struck a tree Saturday morning in Vanceboro.

According to Trooper S.F. Brown the crash happened around 10:13 a.m. on Bear Hole Road.

Brown says a 2011 Chevy Malibu driven by 17-year-old April Toler of New Bern crossed the center-line at a curve. The car then ran off the road and struck a pine tree.

18-year-old Nathan Carawon of New Bern, 15-year-old Hope Hasher of Vanceboro, and 14-year-old Samantha Sullivan of Vanceboro were all passengers inside the car. They were taken to Vidant Medical Center in Pitt County with multiple injuries.

Toler was taken to CarolinaEast Media Center.

Trooper Brown says charges are pending. He says speeding was not a factor that contributed to the crash. The car is a total loss.

    Im samantha Sullivan, i was in the car at the time of the accident. All of you who think you know what went on dont. Speed WAS a factor. We told her to slow down. No, i didnt have my seat belt on but we were 2 minutes down the road form my best friends house, on the way to a cancer walk. So you can talk all you want and say whatever yo want, but i know the truth. And i still am in the hospital, and will be for weeks. The results of this were horrendus, and the driver doesnt even care. She hasnt even came bby or called to see if i was ok. So lets not be slafish, and get the full story before we state our opinions? ok? k thanks(:

    All of you that are saying that the parents are to blame are completely out of line! The parents do not teach drivers ed.! They were not with the child when she was driving. Things happen, and people make mistakes. Instead of blaming the driver, everyone should be praying for all four children instead of criticizing! A lot of people have been in wrecks, and the only thing people should be talking about it praying! If you have nothing nice to say about this, then don't leave a comment! April is a very nice and respectful young lady, and she did not mean to cause this wreck, she did not wake up and say "Today I'm going to get into a wreck and hurt my friends!" No, April is not like that. And once she gets on the computer and reads these comments, everyone that has criticize her is going to make her feel even worse! SHE'S SEVENTEEN YEARS OLD! She still has feelings! Grow up! Also, being a Troopers daughter has nothing to do with this wreck! Don't even know why that was brought up, it was NOT necessary! She was taught how to drive just like every other teenager... In drivers ed at the school! Think before you post something online that can hurt someones feelings! Sincerely, The Troopers OTHER daughter!

    Most of these comments are flat out ignorant. You should ALL be praying for their safety because what if these individuals were you or your children. I am good friends with April and all I have to say is that I really hope she is okay. And I have a class and friends with Nathan and hope he is well too. I don't know the other two teenagers but I do hope that they are doing well. Stop being judgmental when you have no room too. Thank you very much. As for the four teens, I hope to see you all back at school soon and hope you are doing okay! Love you! <3

    We are praying for all. Wishing people had more tact - rather than use someone's misfortune as a sounding post. Seriously Concerned Parent" Parenting skills"? Are you insane? There was one person driving in a single car accident. In my book that's reckless driving at a minimum. It obviously doesn't matter how many were in the car, if she loses control - she is to blame! Not her father, the passengers, etc. But, there is no excuse for her driving with that many kids in the car if it is an illegal act, none. If she crossed the center line on a curve - she was going either too fast for her ability, or the posted speed. In any event she was going too fast - and is to blame.

    As a family member of one of the passengers, how dare anyone comment on something they know nothing about. The 14 year old is still in intensive care at the hospital trying her best to stay alive. The one thing you should all do is pray that she will make it!

      We do. We just want an end to this type of accident. Sorry she is in a bad place, through no fault of her own. May God Bless... By the way, this is a comment section, so you will read many different things. Most are from parents who fear the same thing will happen to their young teen. I truly hope all recover, and go on to make productive lives.

    Glad nobody got seriously hurt. Speeding was not a factor as is usual. Hopefully a really good learning experience for all involved. Had my first one 9 days after I got my license. It happens and no matter what program is in play, its always going to happen. Can't learn unless you're behind the wheel. (Spoken from the father of a 15 yr old and yeah I'm scared)

    Once again, sorry poor kids not their fault. Other kids do somethings wrong and they come from bad homes, criminals or never amout to anything, you people are funny.
