Ms. Hill and one of the small children suffered serious injuries. The teenage girl who was driving and another smaller child were also injured, moderately. According to reports by the highway patrol none of the occupants of the car were wearing their seat belts.
The investigation into the accident determined that the car the 13-year-old girl was operating was owned by Ms. Hill. The State Trooper, Gertson, said the 13-year-old told him she was driving the car and Hill was in the front passenger's seat teaching her to drive. She also told the officer that she tried to turn the corner but the roads were slick. So the car skidded off the right side of the road and struck a tree.
