The driver of the pick-up sustained serious injuries and was taken to hospital for treatment. Similarly, the driver of the car was also severely injured and hospitalized. The accident happened around 9:00 Monday evening.
Police believe alcohol was a factor in the car crash, and that bad judgement was used by the teenager driving the car – a 17-year old woman who has not been identified or charged. According to a report on a local news site, Joshua Bridge's Aunt identified the female driver as her nephew's girlfriend.
