Three teenage girls were tragically killed and one was injured in a car crash that occurred during a storm in Mesa, Arizona on Wednesday night.
The accident happened near Ellsworth and Guadalupe roads, where a blue Mustang with four teenagers inside crashed and flipped over.
First responders had to rescue the girls from the wrecked car, but only one of them, a 14-year-old girl who was sitting in the back seat, survived.
Witnesses say the car was flattened and looked like it was hit by a monster truck.
The 16-year-old driver and her passengers, aged between 14 and 17, were all wearing seat belts when the accident happened.
Investigators believe that the crash was simply a tragic accident and that neither foul play nor impairment were involved.
The driver lost control of the car while changing lanes to the curb lane due to the heavy rain.
The vehicle hit a landscaping boulder, causing it to flip over and spin around before it hit a light pole.
The four girls inside the car were traveling with another carload of friends.
The driver’s age and the severity of the accident have left some parents feeling scared and uneasy about allowing their own teenagers to drive, especially in bad weather conditions.
Investigators are still working to determine the exact cause of the accident, but they believe that weather and speed were contributing factors.
The sole survivor remains in the hospital with serious injuries.
All four girls were students at Skyline High School in Mesa.
