Alcohol Causes Teen Accident

3-17-06 - Some Carter County teenagers received a rude awakening while out for a 3:00 a.m. drive Friday. Troopers say 16-year old Joshua Lakey of Lone Grove was heading down a county road northeast of Wilson when he ran a stop sign and sailed into an embankment.

Two other boys 16-year old Jarrod Lakey and 15-year old Dillon Hodges were with him in the car. Hodges was transported to an Oklahoma City hospital with serious injuries and the other two boys were reported to be okay.

Troopers say no one was wearing their seatbelt and alcohol was the cause of the crash.
