Pennsylvania Teen Crashes Car Intentionally After Arguing With Passengers

Car Accident Graphic

HOOKSTOWN, Pa. (AP) — State police say a western Pennsylvania teen is facing terroristic threat and simple assault charges after she asked her passengers “Do you all want to die?” before intentionally crashing.

Investigators say the 17-year-old driver was arguing with her two passengers before she hit the accelerator and steered off the road early Sunday morning in Greene Township, Beaver County. Police say she then abandoned the passengers at the scene.

Authorities say neither of the passengers were hurt in the crash, although one injured her leg getting out of the vehicle.

Police aren’t releasing the name of the defendant because of her age.
