The young man was still attending the Chester County Schools as the time of the accident, trying to get his educational life on track.
He was reported to of NOT of been wearing his seatbelt at the time, and dies immediately on the scene, according to the EMTs who rushed to the scene.
The weather was reported to of been clear and dry that night; however, the victim was believed to of been speeding recklessly on the way to his home
The posted speed limit in the area is a mere 35 m.p.h, whereas the victim was driving nearly double that at 65 m.p.h., much too fast for the curve he embarked into.
There is still an investigation pending, including toxicology tests that may reveal if alcohol or drugs were in the young man’s system at the time of the accident.
