Passenger Seriously Injured On Way To School

Highway Patrol says three people were on their way to school Tuesday morning when the SUV they were in flipped. The call came in just before 7:30 a.m.

Troopers say the 16-year old driver went off the right side of Market Street Extension in Washington, then she over corrected.

One passenger was thrown from the vehicle and was seriously injured. No word is available on the condition of the driver or other passenger.

Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.

    When I was in school (100 years ago), we had student drivers. Rules were strict and the busses had govenors on the engines so that we could only travel about 35MPH. We never had accidents and we enjoyed the ride. Not so today, the bus drivers are there to get a paycheck not get the kids to school safely. I know there must be rules, are they followed? My sincere prayers to to Maurizzio family, they indeed do have a beautiful family.

    My heart is hurting for this family and many prayers are being said yesterday, last night, and today and will continute to pray for all involved. This is a wonderful loving beautiful family and the judgements need to stop and begin praying sincerely that God will wrap His arms around this beautiful precious child and the rest of the family and take care of them as only He can do. A lot of you have missed the point, which is there was a tragic accident involving three children from the same family and one is injured seriously and the others are feeling the hurt for her. Please think what is coming from your mouth to the writings that you are posting before you post. Daijia, we love you and pray that God will be with you and heal you so that you are back with your family and us very soon. Sending smiles and love your way.

    My husband was on the scene and got the two remaining girls out of the car and in his truck. The youngest kept saying "help my sister", "help my sister" (the one seriously injured and lying on the road) ...it broke my husband's heart. For everyone's info, my husband got the impression that the front right tire came off which resulted in the car flipping. Instead of everyone voicing their opinions about buses and seat belts...why not STOP! Say a pray for the recovery of these children and thank God it was not worse.
