Maryland State Police Beat / Teen Joyride into Tree Leaves One Dead
SHARPTOWN, MD. A carload of teenagers on a high-speed joyride came to an abrupt end when the 17-year-old driver, who apparently never got the message that speed kills, especially when slamming into a tree, did just that, killing a girl who was riding in the Honda on its way on the Highway to Heaven.
…the driver lost control, and the Honda continued off the roadway striking a tree at a high rate of speed.
