Texting Likely Cause Of First-Time Driver’s Fatal Accident


Savannah Nash, a 16-year-old first-time driver, was believed to have been texting when she got into a fatal accident with a tractor-trailer on Thursday, according to authorities.

Nash had asked her parents if she could drive to the local grocery store in Harrisonville, Mo., to pick up groceries for the night’s dinner. On her way to the store, she crashed her vehicle into a tractor-trailer, and died at the scene according to WAFB-TV.

She had apparently turned left into the path of the truck, according to investigators. Investigators also said that they found an unsent message on Nash’s cell phone and conjecture that it may have caused the accident, reported the Democrat- Missourian newspaper.

“There was a text message that was on her phone, however it was not sent yet,” Sgt. Bill Lowe of the Missouri state Highway Patrol told Fox4KC.com. “That is a probable contributing circumstance to the crash. That’s all part of the investigation.”

There was a vigil for Nash on Friday that took place at Harrisonville High School, where she was a freshman honor roll student.
