YouTube Stunt Goes Awry

Two teenagers were injured on Saturday trying to film a car stunt to post on YouTube.com. John Hock, 16, of Peoria, Arizona, planned to have his friends record him with their cell phone camera as he tried to send his car airborne at an intersection.

Hock was driving his 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse at speeds of 70 to 85 mph when he lost control of the car. The eclipse went off the road, and rolled over after hitting several trees. Hock was ejected from the car and has been hospitalized in life-threatening condition. His 17-year-old passenger, Laura Melton, was helped out of the totaled vehicle by friends who were following in another car.

Hock will have to forego seeing his attempted stunt on YouTube because his friends told investigators they did not film it. They were afraid of his high speeds.

It has been estimated that 16-year-olds, like John Hock, are three times more likely to be killed in an accident than any other age group. In 2006, only 30 percent of 16-year-olds had their driver's license. Graduated driver's licenses appear to have been one of the causes of the low number of licensed 16-year-olds, as well as the fact that fatalities among 15- to 20-year-olds has declined by 6.5 percent since their implementation.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto accident due to the negligence of another driver, please contact the Accident Lawyers Network to find an injury lawyer in your area.
