LINCOLN PARK, MICHIGAN: An eight-year-old old girl along with two teenagers, aged 18 and 15, lost their lives in a terrifying crash that also left two more girls, aged 13 and 14, injured. Reports suggest that the incident happened on Thursday night, November 17, at around 9 pm when a SUV crashed into a tree. It has also been said that around 55 people watched the accident as the driver of the car was livestreaming the ride on Instagram.

The two girls who survived the crash were sitting in the front of the vehicle as passengers while the 14-year-old girl was driving. However, the 18-year-old, the 15-year-old and the 8-year-old girl who were sitting in the backseat of the car, unfortunately, did not survive.

According to authorities, the driver who was driving at a very high speed lost control of the car, which flipped numerous times before hitting a tree on Cicotte Ave near Porter. Ex-EMT and Lincoln Park homeowner Jennifer Kruger reportedly witnessed the misadventure. She told ClickOnDetroit, “I wish I could have helped them. I was freaked out when I found out they were kids, and that I couldn’t help them. I couldn’t get near the car — I didn’t even know if the car was going to blow up.”

“That’s what kind of scared me, at first. I’m thinking, ‘Well is it going to catch on fire?’ Because it hit hard. Literally, it rocked my house. I’ve never felt that before. It was like a bomb went off. It was bad,” she added. Krugner also spoke with FOX 2 Detroit and told the channel, “It hit the curb right by the driveway and when it hit the curb, she went airborne, and she lost total control. They were all unconscious, every one of them. The wreckage that I saw just is something no one ever needs to see that. I've got grandkids some of these girls' ages. I just kept thinking these could be my babies.”

Another anonymous person saw the accident as they added, “I just heard a loud bang. Screeching tires and a loud bang. I just came out of the house and saw that car flipped over on its side.” Meanwhile, the accident has attracted a few comments on social media with one person writing on Facebook, “This is absolutely crazy.” Another person shared, “kids need to remember there’s huge consequences for their actions… unfortunately the girl driving killed her sister along with others and she has to face those consequences and live with that the rest of her life. I can’t imagine how her parents feel.”

When a user asked, "Who was driving?! The only one old enough was in the back seat??” the first one replied, “14 year old was driving, her 8 year old sister was sadly killed along with a 15 year old and 18 year old the 14 year old driver was released from hospital and is okay. 13 year old is still in critical condition. That’s what I’m wondering why was the only of age one to drive in the back seat?!”
