In Florida and the rest of the United States, one of the leading causes of death to teenagers is the automobile accident. It is an unfortunate statistic and reality that continues to claim the loss of lives on Florida highways and roads. There is a ripple effect of the death of a teenager whose life is ended abruptly and in some cases the accident or death was preventable. In Flagler County, Florida, a Florida teenager (Shaklyia M. Chess) was driving a 1995 Infinity on U.S. 1 near Bunnell, Florida near midnight. FHP believes that the driver lost control of the vehicle, hit a median, and ultimately collided with some trees. Shaklyia, according to investigating authorities, was not wearing a seat belt. Since this accident involved a death, the Florida Highway Patrol will conduct a thorough investigation and issue a report regarding this matter.
